On 8/12/90, Pavement played their second show of all time at the Hoboken, New Jersey club Maxwell’s. And through the magic of the internet, a tape recording of that show has now appeared on our computers. The 36-minute audio clip features early versions of songs like “Box Elder” and “Home,” and you can listen to it below.
