Big Star — with Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow standing in for Chris Bell and Andy Hummel — just announced their first U.S. date for 2009: Wednesday, Nov. 8th at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple in Brooklyn, N.Y. Admission is $35, with tickets available here. Go here to see the revamped Big Star in action, performing "September Gurls" in London two months ago.

The Big Star gig isn't the only reunion concert receiving major buzz this week: 1990s-era indie rockers Pavement just announced their first date since November 20th, 1999. The September 21st, 2010 concert at Rumsey Playfield in NYC's Central Park sold out within a few hours, but the band subsequently announced two more gigs, slated for the same stage on Sept. 22nd and 23rd. Ticketmaster has all the details. Until then, Pavement fans will have to sate themselves with The Real Feel, a new album from Pavement guitarist Scott Kannberg (a.k.a. Spiral Stairs), due on Matador Records on Oct. 20th.
