Guided By Voices . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

By Kyle Melton

When word came down last summer that the “Classic Lineup” of Dayton icons Guided By Voices would be reuniting for an extended U.S. tour, tickets sold out at exceptional clip from coast to coast. Led by the prolific songwriting talents of Robert Pollard, the band are performing material from their mid-90s heyday from the albums Propeller, Bee Thousand, Alien Lanes and Under the Bushes, Under the Stars, as well as deep cuts from their more obscure releases. Upon their return, GBV earned near-universal acclaim as a must-see live act on the strength of undeniable pop gems and an utterly unpredictable live set. This hometown show is certain to be filled with epic revelry for one of the most beloved acts to ever come out of Dayton. Guided By Voices will perform on Wednesday, March 16 at Dublin Pub, 300 Wayne Ave. Opening the evening will be Dirty Socialites. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 DOS.
