I would say, aside from Pavement, the most thrilling aspects of this weekend were the aftershows.
Titus Andronicus played an insanely hot, wild set at Subterranean.
Lightning Bolt played Bitchpork under the name of "Turd Thrower" Saturday night.
Bitchpork consisted of a multi-level warehouse with bands playing everywhere. Ice cream trucks, weird lights, outdoor patios with acoustic-laden shirtless men screaming lyrics...
By sunday night, when Malkmus uttered the words "Times New Viking", I knew where they were playing, but as much of a show junkie as I am, my body would not physically allow me to go.
Here's a mash-up of almost everything i got my calloused, bruis-laden little hands on this weekend. Enjoy :
