Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver Wednesday night.

The show was one of the last North American dates of the band’s tour in support of their new album Mirror Traffic. Band members include Joanna Bolme on bass, Jake Morris on drums and Mike Clark on guitar.

Malkmus and The Jicks also did a cover of the 1978 Sweet hit “Love is Like Oxygen”.
