Monday night show at the Peel… Win two tickets to see the reunited Guided by Voices at the Peel on September 17. Just be the first to tell us from what American city the band is from.

From the Peel:

In 2009, Robert Pollard reunited the “classic era” (1993-1996) Guided By Voices line-up for Matador Records’ 21st anniversary and a short tour: Tobin Sprout (guitar)  “Mitch” Mitchell(guitar), Greg Demos (bass) and Kevin Fennel (drums),  who recorded GBV‘s ground-breaking lo-fi album, Bee Thousand, which Amazon.com has heralded as the #1 All Time Greatest Indie Rock Album.

Following sold out shows and fantastic performances, Pollard took the band into the studio to record Let’s Go Eat The Factorywhich was released in January 2012 to tremendous acclaim: iTunes Single of the Week, iTunes featured album, David Letterman TV show appearance, NPR Exclusive First Listen, Rolling Stone Magazine Playlist, covers of Magnet and Ghettoblaster magazine…

In June, GBV will be releasing yet another new album, which ups the ante with the standout singles, “Keep It In Motion” and “Class Clown Spots A UFO” 

If you like one GBV song, you’re bound to like a hundred more.” – Rolling Stone

Ages 18+

Sounds Like: Prolific low-fi band formed in the 80s and popular through the 90s, back with the original lineup! Many consider them the godfathers of indie music.
