you can never quarantine the past

I experienced time travel on Thursday night. I went to see the Pavement reunion show at the Enmore Theatre and they took me right back to the 1990s. I saw them a few times in the mid-to-late 90s and was at their last-ever (to that point) concert in London in 1999.

On Thursday night suddenly I found myself back there, sitting in London’s Brixton Academy, on the brink of my life changing. These last ten years melted away and the precious years of the 2000s were all in front of me. And the band still makes incredible noise. Maybe even better than before. The sensation was bittersweet and beautiful.
