Pavement to Play Toronto Island Concert with Broken Social Scene and Band of Horses
Good news, Canadians: Pavement are heading to the Great White North. Yes, at long last, the indie rock trailblazers have announced the first Canadian date of their reunion tour, which finds the band playing the 2010 edition of the Toronto Island Concert on June 19.

The concert will mark Pavement's first Toronto stop in more than a decade, and follows a long string of previously announced reunion shows, which includes All Tomorrow's Parties, Primevera, Sasquatch and NYC's Central Park, among others.

For their Toronto Island Concert stop, beloved Canadian rock troupe Broken Social Scene will co-headline. And according to the TIC press release, BSS will have their ridiculously long-awaited new album ready for release this spring and will unveil it at this year's TIC.

Band of Horses are set to support both bands on the bill, and more artists will be announced in the coming weeks. Pre-sale ticket go on sale January 18 at www.galleryac.com. For updates, check the Toronto Island Concert website here.

As previously reported, Pavement will be releasing Quarantine the Past: The Best of Pavement on March 9 via Matador.
