It is here. Our final day of Pavement ticket giveaways and today we test your knowledge of the band with one kickass crossword puzzle. The clues cover the band's long history, plus—just as Malkmus would want it—there is one fantasy baseball question thrown in for good measure. The first person to finish this crossword and email us the answers, will win our final pair of tickets to their September 3rd show at Edgefield.
The puzzle is after the jump, good luck!
