PAveMEnT II: More Malkmus, More Jicks (late August 2021)

Post by TaylorH »

I’m pleased to announce PAveMEnT II, the sequel to the recent PAveMEnT (Popular Music Auditory Music Enthusiast Tournament). PAveMEnT II will once again be an online music doubles tournament oriented around popular music, i.e. non-classical music. The tournament will be written by myself, Young Fenimore Lee, Wonyoung Jang, Victor Pavao, Isaac Renert, Lea Wittman, Anson Berns, and Chauncey Lo. The exact date and format is TBA, but expect to play in a format similar to past remote audio events in the mid fall 2021 timeframe for the first mirror.

The entry fee per player (per tournament/mirror) will be $15. The distribution entirely consists of popular music genres. The difficulty of the questions will be similar to the first PAveMEnT. The distribution is as follows:

2 pop music from 1950-1989
2 pop music from 1990-2020
1 soul, blues, pre-1960 rock and R&B
1 country and folk
1.5 jazz, Great American Songbook, and traditional pop
1 electronic music, electronica, and house music
3.5 rap, hip-hop, and R&B
1.5 rock from 1960-1979
1.5 rock from 1980-1999
1.5 rock from 2000-2020
3.5 extra or misc. tossups - these can span across genres and eras

There will be 12 total packets. More information on exact date, format, and how to register will be available in the coming weeks.

Sweet. I hope to retain my slot as the worst PAveMEnt player.

The set is about 30% written. Production is going a little slower than anticipated, so we are now shooting to have the first mirror of this set sometime in fall 2021. The open post has been updated accordingly.
