backstage @ the Atlanta show (seanstarwars)
Guided by Voices

I can't tell you how many times I asked people "when is Guided by Voices going to add a 2nd NYC show?" "Not going to happen" they always responded. Well, from one point of view they were right. It still didn't get added to the tour they announced almost four months ago. That's the same tour that hit Matador 21 and includes a single, sold out, November 7th NYC show at Terminal 5 (which also happens to be the final date of the tour).

However, a 2nd NYC show has been added! And it takes place almost 2 months later, December 31st, 2010 to be exact, at Irving Plaza ($72 ADV; $75 DOS, Tickets on sale Sat, Nov 6 @ 10AM).

The Roots, Sharon Jones, Patti Smith, Passion Pit, Phish, and Drive-By Truckers, and Gov't Mule are all also playing New Years Eve shows in the NYC-area.

Check out the 40 song setlist Guided by Voices played in Atlanta this past Saturday night, below...
