On a day that could have been a helluva lot better but could still be way worse, something nifty has bubbled to the surface of the bog that is the internet. Our daily delight comes in the form of recordings from the first Pavement show. In 1989, the band stopped by Davis, California radio station 90.3 KDVS and put "Mellow Jazz Docent" and "Home" down on tape. This is considered their first gig in the sense that the band had an actual lineup in place, and was considered to be for all intents and purposes a "real" band. So, there you go. Take a listen.
