The Club is open! Guided by Voices have returned to the stage with their original lineup, including lead man Robbert Pollard. I was fortunate enough to see them at Trocadero’s in Philadelphia (see below) which featured some 60 songs – almost all of them new – as well as dozens of leg kicks, mic twirls, guitar poses and countless bottle spins and cigarettes. (Aren’t those things supposed to be bad for you?) They’ve also released two new CDs with another on the way next month. (How is that even possible?)Dates are set for the fall. Go to see the best low-fi there ever might be! More on Guided By Voices can be seen at their website.
