Damn......that was a great show.
A month ago, I was fairly certain I wasn't gonna go to this, but the show I originally wanted tickets to sold out, so I chose to go to this one. I ended up going alone, but boy am I glad I went.
So after 6 years of being broken up, Robert Pollard decides to reform Guided by Voices with the treasured Bee Thousand-era lineup (which had dissipated SIXTEEN years ago). They brought a whole tray of beers and a bottle of tequila onstage with them, and drank and smoked while playing onstage!. They were great however. Even in his old age, Bob Pollard still has an amazing, tuneful voice (and he still does those cock rock mic swinging karate-kick moves he used to do back in the 90's!). The other band members would let loose too, with bassist Greg Demos getting really close to the crowd with his guitar-face on and guitarist Mitch Mitchell high-fiving the front row every so often (including myself!)
