Stephen Malkmus Covered Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” For Charity

It didn’t go down in flames.

February 19, 2015

If it seems like pretty much everyone loves Taylor Swift's 1989, well here's even more evidence. Legendary Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus has seemingly taken a shine to "Blank Space," at the very least, covering it last month in Portland with his band the Jicks. The performance was part of a children's variety show called You Who, but he still treats the track with as much respect as any other that he's covered over the course of his career. Watch the video (replete with a bubble machine and rambling guitar solo) above thanks to MyMusicRx.
