Live Streams From Matador 21 Start Tonight With Pavement, Sonic Youth, And Fucked Up


It’s understandable, your depression/jealousy/irritation at not being physically present in Las Vegas this weekend for Matador Records’ bizarrely elaborate Matador at 21 spectacle, featuring just about every major label act you could possibly desire unless you’re, like, a die-hard Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 fan. But then again, everyone there either just left NYC (Pavement, Superchunk, Belle & Sebastian) or is showing up here eventually (Guided by Voices in particular, whose “classic lineup” reunion tour began in Dallas (40-song setlist!) this week, and rolls into Terminal 5 next month.) And if that’s not enough solace, MySpace is apparently streaming the whole thing, starting tonight with sets from Chavez (also just here), Fucked Up, Sonic Youth, and Pavement. The full schedule:


Chavez: 8:30pm – 9:10pm

Fucked Up: 9:35pm – 10:15pm

JUST ADDED: Sonic Youth: 10:40 pm – 11:30 pm

Pavement: 12:00am – 1:00am

(The entire night’s stream will then repeat the next morning)


JUST ADDED: Girls: 4:40pm – 5:20pm

Come: 5:45pm – 6:25pm

Perfume Genius: 7:55pm – 8:15pm

Follow all the action here: Sitting with a laptop and watching Bob Pollard mainline Budweiser in a run-down Vegas casino would be quite a trip, I suppose.
