If you spent the early 1990s listening to alternative rock radio, chances are you have spent a lot of energy air-guitaring to Pavement songs. Well, the band that made you think you could start your own band wants to put your alt-rock posturing to good use. When Pavement plays Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Sept. 23, you could be on stage playing “Gold Soundz” or “Cut Your Hair” or “Shady Lane” right there with them.
Matador Records, the label Pavement call home, announced the contest on Friday but you better hurry because the deadline for submission is Wednesday, Sept. 8.
Visit the Late Night website for all the details and to submit a video of yourself rockin your favorite Pavement song. The winner will be chosen by online vote, so even if you don’t play guitar make sure to check out the results and be a part of the process. Full contest rules and regulations here. Imagine giving Stephen Malkmus a high-five on television!
