Show Preview: Guided By Voices @ Emos (9.25)

Date Tuesday, September 25th
Location Emos East
Doors 800 PM
Tickets $22-$30 from Ticketfly

Really you don’t need much encouragement to go out and see Guided By Voices.  The band’s output speaks for itself, and either you’re a fan, or you’re not, but if you are, you already made plans to be at the show.  Since reforming the original line-up, the group hasn’t really missed a beat, releasing the enjoyable Class Clown Spots a UFO earlier this year.   If you know nothing about the group, trust us when we say that this is one of those musical experiences you need to be a part of, so be sure to get your tickets! Detective will be opening the evening up.

New Tunes from Guided By Voices

Guided By Voices is certainly an acquired taste for many, but if you listen to this track, you’re going to have to recognize the songwriting gifts of Robert Pollard and Co. You can find the song on a 7″, as well as the new LP Class Clown Spots a UFO, which hits stores on June 12th.  In my mind, this is perhaps one of the best songs the group’s written.  For one, there’s a good solid length (something often lacking from the group) and Bob’s voice sounds remarkable here.  It’s about as simple as a pop ballad as you can get, and I’m loving it!
