At Pitchfork they seemed unenthused and just kind of punching the clock. I realize they've been touring for months now and are no longer spring chickens, I guess I just expected the energy to match the music (though Bob N. was certainly all-in). I never had the chance to see the first iteration of Pavement, where they always as lackadaisical on stage?
I suppose I've been anticipating the show since the early aughts, perhaps expectations grew unreasonable.
