A chatty Stephen Malkmus took the stage in Washington, D.C., with his latest incarnation of The Jicks, chatting up the 9:30 Club's sold-out March 28 crowd with the wry humor that's made his clever brand of rock 'n' roll so popular. Anchored by his band's latest addition — former Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss — Malkmus and The Jicks ran through more than an hour and a half of old favorites and new cuts from their latest album, Real Emotional Trash. Hear the full performance, originally webcast live on NPR.org Mar. 28, 2008. This includes an interview with the band and All Songs Considered host Bob Boilen after the show.
