Guided by Voices’ GBV40 Night 2: Built to Spill, Heartless Bastards & Wednesday (setlists, video)

Guided by Voices wrapped up their two-day GBV40 40th anniversary celebration in Dayton on Saturday with lots more indie rock. GBV’s set wasn’t entirely different that Friday’s show but a there weren’t that many repeats, and really who doesn’t want to hear “Glad Girls” and “A Game of Pricks” again? No special guests but Bob Pollard shouted out former bassist Greg Demos who was in the crowd, and thanked all the former members of the band. The show ended with “Don’t Stop Now” which we hope GBV never will.

Saturday’s undercard was pretty awesome, with the equally iconic (if less prolific) Built to Spill, plus Heartless Bastards and Wednesday getting things off to a great start.

Check out Guided by Voices and Built To Spill’s setlists from GBV40, plus a few fan pics and videos below.
