Guided by Voices @ Metro on 8.11.2012
On Saturday night (8/11) Guided by Voices visited Chicago to play a one-off show at Metro with support from Radar Eyes. A full set of pictures and some video footage from the show can be found below. As you might remember, GBV played their final show at the Wrigleyville club on New Year's Eve in 2004. The show was documented on the DVD The Electrifying Conclusion. The band reunited for Matador's 21st birthday fest in 2010 and have released two records so far this year, with a third rumored to drop in November. Were you there on Saturday night? How was it?
