As frontman for indie-rock forefathers Pavement, Stephen Malkmus holds a place in the hearts of music geeks far and wide. And while recent Pavement reunion shows have garnered positive reviews, Malkmus has spent the last several years solo. Last year’s “Mirror Traffic” and 2008’s “Real Emotional Trash” show Malkmus at his witty, literate best. His voice hasn’t aged a bit, and you can hear it live at the Fox Theatre tonight. Tickets, $22-$25, are available through foxtheatre.com.
