Well, just two independent record stores, really. But for one night only! The Matablog, the blog of Matador Records, has announced that Stephen Malkmus (of Jicks and Pavement fame) will be hitting up New York August 25, dividing up his time here in two free shows—one at Brooklyn’s Academy at 6pm, and another at Manhattan’s Other Music at 9pm. Malkmus will be playing intimate, acoustic sets followed by an exclusive poster signing. Is it crazy to propose going to both by joining a long Stephen Malkmus march-of-the-hardcore-fans over the Williamsburg bridge? Possibly. In the meantime, watch this recent video of Malkmus performing solo, acoustic, in a French basketball court, après le jump.
