Asked by host Stephen Colbert why they are back touring after 11 years, Stephen Malkmus answered, “Because it’s fun. Rock and roll is fun.”
The band also teamed up with Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to help make rock and roll fun for a lucky fan. Tonight on the show, the winner of the Play Guitar With Pavement contest will get to perform with the indie rockers on live television.
