The reformed group will play their first ever hometown gig in Stockton on June 24

Pavement have announced that original drummer Gary Young is set to join them for a special one-off show.

Taking place on June 24 at the Bob Hope Theatre in Stockton, California, the gig is also the group’s first ever hometown show.

Young, who produced Pavement‘s early EPs in his home studio, also played drums on their 1992 debut album ‘Slanted & Enchanted’.

Quitting the band in 1993, the drummer was known for his eccentric behaviour which included handing out cabbage and mashed potatoes to fans at the door at gigs, doing handstands and running around the venue and stage while the rest of the band played.

His last recorded effort with the group was on the ‘Watery, Domestic’ EP in 1992.
