Since Robert Pollard began taking the classic Guided by Voices out on the road, the Dayton band have hit Cincinnati, Columbus, Oberlin, Nelsoville (this weekend), but still haven’t come back to Cleveland. That’s going to change. On Friday, September 14th Uncle Bob, Mitch, Tobin, Kevin and Greg will be at the Grog Shop in Cleveland Heights. There will be beers — Lots of beers and boooze, too. There will be rock kicks from the still spry Uncle Bob. There will be windmills from the smoking like a choo-choo train Mitch Mitchell. And, just to prove it’s not all about idol worship and getting wasted with your idol, there will here some of the finest rock and pop songs the indie rock world has even known. Can you tell I’m stoked? I’m stoked and typing on a tummy of Gennessee. Full tour dates below:
