After their performance was marred by sound problems, the band's frontman states, 'It's great that Matador organized this event. I think it's going to be important that you came here.'

Cult rockers Pavement left fans at their Las Vegas concert baffled on Friday, October 1 when frontman Stephen Malkmus hinted the reunited band's appearance would be their last. The group reformed earlier this year to play their first live shows in just over a decade following their 1999 split, but their disjointed performance at the Pearl Ballroom in Sin City's Palms Casino appeared to signal the beginning of the end for the California rockers.

Pavement's 18-song set, part of the 21st anniversary celebrations for independent label Matador, was marred by sound problems throughout, prompting axeman Scott Kannberg to kick his monitor and bash his guitar into his amp in frustration, reports NME.com. And Malkmus suggested the troubled show, in which the five-piece barely acknowledged one another onstage, would be Pavement's final gig together.

He told the audience, "It's great that Matador organized this event. I think it's going to be important that you came here."
