Stephen Malkmus Segued From Playing Pavement To Led Zeppelin To The Velvet Underground

It’s been a bit since we last heard from Stephen Malkmus, whose Jicks last released an album in 2011. But they’re preparing to put out another one soon, the delightfully titled Wig Out at Jagbags, and on Friday, they played a hometown show in Portland, performing songs new, old, and Led Zeppelin and the Velvet Underground.

Below, check out video of Malkmus and the Jicks going from Pavement’s “Harness Your Hopes” to “Stairway to Heaven” to “Beginning to See the Light,” which I assume is the national anthem of Portland.
