Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks

MICHAEL MANNHEIMER
8 pm., Friday November 08 | $23 advance, $25 day of show.
Crystal Ballroom
1332 W Burnside St.
 
[FOREVER 28] Stephen Malkmus never ages. Though indie rock’s boy wonder is inching ever-closer to 50, he still looks, dresses and acts the same as when he led Pavement to the top of the, um, CMJ charts in the mid-’90s. His songwriting has changed a bit, but his spirit hasn’t: His last record with the Jicks, 2011’s Mirror Traffic, was his loosest collection of songs since Pavement’s Wowee Zowee. That record saw him (mostly) ditch his prog-rock impulses and Groundhogs-style guitar wankery for some of the finest, purest pop of his career, including the classic “Forever 28” and spirited “Stick Figures in Love.” Tonight is the band’s first show since a tour of Brazil last spring, and with a slew of U.K. dates coming up in January, it’s likely a precursor to a new Jicks record next year.
