Introducing the track 'Baltimore,' which Matador Records recently began offering as a free download, Malkmus quipped that the audience may have already heard the track "in the MP3 format. But I'm an AVI guy myself."
Jicks' multi-instrumentalist Mike Clark retorted, "I'm an OGG guy."
The show included only a handful of previously released songs, all of which were culled from Malkmus' most recent two albums. As predicted, no Pavement tracks. Malkmus and the Jicks will play just one more show this year, this Friday night in Portland, OR.
With this new batch of songs, Malkmus continues moving in the direction he's been headed, which is to say, towards the center of the legendary land of awesome-ville. By some accounts, he's already there.
