Matador Records announced today that they will release a Best of Pavement double cd/lp titled “Quarantine The Past”. As part of the announcement they launched a contest to “guess the track list” which includes some very cool prizes. Details below:
Quarantine The Past lands in stores as Pavement embark on their first live appearances since the fall of 1999. Dates begin in New Zealand on March 1 and continue through Australia and Europe over the spring and summer, with 4 dates in New York’s Central Park next September. More US shows will be announced shortly.
