9/5 One of the first bands in America to embody the term “alternative rock,” Pavement came onto the scene in the early ’90s. Playing together for the first time in 10 years, their “one time only” reunion tour will feature the California–based band’s biggest songs (also celebrated on their album Quarantine: The Best of Pavement, released last March). Don’t miss your chance to see these alt-rock pioneers live in concert one last time. 8 p.m. $32. Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St.; 206.682.1414; stgpresents.org
