Pixies and Pavement to Headline Primavera Sound Festival, and The ’90s Have Never Been More Awesome

The San Miguel Primavera Sound Festival is always cause for excitement, because it sports a promising roster of great bands year after year, spanning the better part of three glorious days. While most Europeans can count their pennies and hop the nearest Ryanair flight over to Spain, those living stateside aren't quite so conveniently located.

But in case you are planning to attend Primavera, you'll be mighty pleased to learn that the recently reunited indie vets Pavement will be one of this year's headliners, along with the time-honored rockers Pixies. Indeed, for those of you lucky enough to be living within arm's (or plane's) reach of Barcelona and/or Madrid, Primavera Sound Festival is shaping up to be a serious blast from the past. I wonder if Sebadoh will be making an appearance as well? No? Just wishful thinking on my part then?
