Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks 

When: Sat., Oct. 1, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $17-20

After brief stints in a few Northern California punk bands, Stephen Malkmus broke new ground fronting indie rock icons Pavement before exporting that band's quirky pop into his solo career. Backed by The Jicks, Malkmus retains the immediately recognizable speak-sing, falsetto, absurd lyricism, guitar freak-outs and indelible hooks that made Pavement so crucial. While the songwriting on his post-Pavement work—including his Beck-produced fifth disc Mirror Traffic—isn't as consistently solid, fans won't be disappointed. Holy Sons—obvious Malkmus disciples—open. —Spencer Griffith
