...randomness surrounding Guided by Voices, Robert Pollard, and other great indie rock bands; a quasi objective look at "my" sporting teams; the random horror film; plus other crap as we see fit...all with a Pittsburgh based feel.

The Textbook Committee at Canal Street Tavern

Chicago's absolute best Guided By Voices cover band performs in the GBV Heartland this Saturday, at the Canal Street Tavern in Dayton. Sounds like the perfect time for friends, suds, and pure rawk bliss.

Who's coming with me?

For the first time ever, I may yell out "FLAT BEAUTY!!", and actually here it live??

We're gonna drive your Thunderbird through Canada
I'm not supposed to tell you
Up to the tundra, I'm focused in my development
I'm not supposed to tell you
Don't leave any notes for Birgit
She don't have to know
One foolish life in the snow

I've got tickets to the circus of delirium
I'm not supposed to tell you
Complements of the fabulous freebird
I'm not supposed to tell you
Don't leave any clues for Betsy
She don't have to look
One silly page in the book

Take the time to stumble
Show them faith in something larger in your life

Don't leave any clouds(?) for Carol
She shouldn't have to cry
Where is the spark in your eye?
This is the day that we fly
Don't waste your time on goodbye

and you're my fact checking cuz.

Dan!! I've never seen 'em before...but apparently they've got set lists on their MySpace page.

Flat Beauty, apparently, is on there :)


How come you didn't use the large picture?

Barthatronic said...

Barthatronic said...

Missed you, sick boy. Saw your pretty lady, though. Wish you well. See you later this year in Dayton for Heedfest?

gary said...

I tried my hardest to get up and going, bud! Was off work all week, so this really hit me hard.

I am IN for HEEDFEST!!! Woot.

Hey Barth...just posted pics from the show:


looks like it was a grand time. See you in July!
