We have just learned that Guided by Voices will perform at the Magic Stick on May 5. The new lineup lacks Tobin Sprout, but it looks promising for fans of big rock sound: GBV veterans Doug Gillard and Kevin March, virgins Bobby Bare Jr and Mark Shue, and of course, ringleader Robert Pollard.
That's right, the band is not only back together again, but they've announced details for a new GBV LP which marks Pollard's 100th full-length release to date — including solo releases and work with GBV.
