The neon sign blinked on: THE CLUB IS OPEN
And with that, a visceral bellow of approbation went up from the the well-lubricated crowd packing the sold-out Paradise on Friday night, Nov. 5. At long last, the boys were back in town.
Guided by Voices front man Robert Pollard – tall and rangy, white-haired, but looking fit for man with a noted thirst who'd just turned 53 on Halloween – ambled onstage clutching a bottle of Jose Cuervo and a half-smoked cigarette.
Guided by Voices fans, commence your Pollard-style high kicking now: that "classic" GBV lineup reunion show we told you about a few weeks ago? It's now turned into a full-blown tour, per an announcement on Robert Pollard's site, thus sparing us a dangerous beer surplus at venues across America. Blitzen Trapper opens the Boston date, November 5th at the Paradise.
