Pavement Finally Tried Their Album-Themed Pierogi

Pavement finally got to try the album-themed pierogi developed in their honor by an Ohio bakery at their Saturday night tour stop in Detroit. Rudy’s Strudel rolled up with pierogi, stuffed cabbage rolls, and other pastries for the band on September 25. The restaurant unveiled the pierogi at an event in Parma, Ohio last month, teaming up with a local brewery and a record shop, The Current Year. 

In August, Rudy’s owner Lidia Trempe said she was inspired to develop Pavement-themed pierogi via her own fandom. She said that she skipped her prom in 1995 in order to see the band perform in Cleveland. Bob Nastanovich shared a brief statement about the custom treats in Detroit via Rudy’s:

Everybody loved them including [opener] Circuit Des Yeux, who dug in. It was all smiles and band and crew were grateful for Lidia’s generosity. The stuffed cabbage rolls were perfect and the vast dessert spread was very pretty. I had to cut myself off so I could play. If I kept going, I could have slept soundly with a smile in front of West’s kick drum. I can’t imagine going to Parma / Cleveland and not loading up on Rudy’s Strudel.

Pavement’s long-delayed reunion tour is underway, continuing through Europe, Japan, and Australia after the band wraps up its U.S. dates in November. During their four-night run at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn this weekend, they’ll debut Pavements 1933-2022: A Pavement Museum, an exhibition that collects ephemera with “rumored relics of the band’s real and imagined history.” It will be on view from Thursday, September 29 through Sunday, October 2. Pavements will travel to London and Tokyo before being permanently installed in Stockton, California.
