When word came that Robert Pollard would be reuniting the mid-90s lineup of guided By Voices for Matador’s 21st anniversary celebrations in Vegas, it was a foregone conclusion that they’d eventually embark on a full tour. And here we are: Brookln Vegan‘s got the first string of dates, which includes a stop at Terminal 5 on November 7th, which is a Sunday night and thus a total bummer.
Strange, though: They’re scheduled to tape an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on the afternoon of November 4th, and they don’t yet have a show scheduled for that night. It’s probably not gonna happen, but I’m holding out a sliver of hope for a secret, smaller show. Maybe at Bowery? Music Hall? Maybe? Anyway, tickets for the T5 show go on sale Friday July 23rd.
So, in 2010, I’m going to see Pavement, Superchunk, Belle and Sebastian and now Guided by Voices. Which leaves one question: Uh, hey Archers of Loaf, wtf?
