In 2012, the club re-opened for the mightiest of all fuckin’ mighty–the resurrected 90’s “classic” version of Guided by Voices–and the endless hooks, wasteoid marathon live shows and Bud Light haven’t stopped flowing since. While Bee Thousand (’94) and Alien Lanes (’95) are forever cemented in indie rock lore as underground-defining firestorms of the highest beer-chugging, anthemic and seminal order, the massive and utterly relentless reunion record string GbV overlord Bob Pollard and company have unleashed are dizzying strokes of absolute genius. Fist pumps and leg kicks ‘til death.
