Malkmus: Moves NYC Show, Stream Solo Noise Pop Video

Stephen Malkmus Solo At GAMH, from the HAD Archive

Fans of Stephen Malkmus have been eagerly awaiting next week's show with the Jicks, in support of the band's latest, Mirror Traffic.  Said fans will probably be more than a little stoked to learn that the gig has been moved from the cavernous Terminal 5, to the far more endearing Webster Hall.  Perhaps less enticing is the fact that the gig has changed from Monday the 26th to Sunday the 25th: no one loves a last minute date change.  Nonetheless, the fact remains that the advent of Jicksian goodness is soon to be upon us in just 6 days!

In the meantime, you can enjoy video from Malkmus' solo set at Noise Pop in 2009.  You may recall that we covered the show at the time, and in the pre-Pavement reunion era, it was a suprisingly awesome swath of that band's tunes.  Moreover, it featured a ton of Malkmus solo material, as well as notable (and fantastic) covers of "Love Train" and "Emotional Rescue".  You can check it all out over at Paste Magazine right now...  (Thanks to an anonymous HAD reader for the tip!)
