The kids love Taylor Swift. The kids love “Blank Space.” And, apparently, the kids love Stephen Malkmus covering “Blank Space.” 

Last month, the former Pavement frontman performed with his current band, the Jicks, as part of the Portland, Ore.-based kids’ variety show, You Who. The audience is decidedly younger than a typical Jicks show, so of course they covered “Blank Space.” 

The kids almost start a mosh pit toward the end. Or maybe they’re all just clamoring for the bubble machine.
