Ok so this is like the biggest fucking news of the year! Pitchfork is so damn excited they can’t write any sub-head’s they just put !!!!!!!!!!! all over their home page. I too, am freaking excited. But let’s tame ourselves a little.

Why shit bricks for something that we won’t get for a year! Patience people. You’re going to get all backed up.

On the other hand, there are many reasons to get pumped. Did anyone see Malkmus and the Jicks maybe 5 years ago at Battery Park on the 4th of July? That show was the shiiiiiit. Malkmus really knows how to turn on the crowd. There’s also the time he sang with Sonic Youth, and he was so good they wanted him to join the band.

So. Tickets are on sale tomorrow. Details: The password for the pre-sale is ZOWEE and the ticketing link is http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/00004330A3C355DD.
