At the beginning of the month we told you that over at Matador they’ve decided to celebrate their first 21 years of success with style. There’ll be a commemorative box set ( “ Matador at 21 ”, available as of today) and a festival taking place at the city of casinos. On the first weekend of October, the Las Vegas Palms Resort and Casino will be the setting for three consecutive days of live performances by Pavement, Sonic Youth, Belle & Sebastian, Superchunk, Yo La Tengo, Cat Power, Come, Girls, Spoon, Guided By Voices, Fucked Up, Cold Cave, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Guitar Wolf, Times New Viking, Kurt Vile… A real paradise for indie-rock lovers, you’ll be able to watch live stream.
The Myspace Music team will be streaming live the Matador at 21 shows taking place during the weekend but not all the performances, which is a pity because some of our favourite bands are being left off. You can watch it here: myspace.com/matador21. If you’re interested, check out the provisional schedule of Matador’s “The Lost Weekend” below. Work out your time difference.
