Malkmus & The Jicks are currently on the road in support of Wig Out at Jagbags.
The tour took them to Chicago's Lincoln Hall last night, where they performed in front of a capacity

impromptu medley as part of their encore. This time around the medley included portions of
a pair of Beck songs as well as a Pavement gem.

medley if only for the audio:
