Here are two songs from the soundcheck for Guided By Voices' show at Hara Arena in the lovely Dayton suburb of Trotwood, Ohio on March 18, 1994. This was bassist Dan Toohey's last GBV show. Also, the dude in the maroon shirt (to the right of guitarist Mitch Mitchell) is future GBV guitarist, Nate Farley, who was the guitar tech that night. As it turns out, the tunes they played, Pimple Zoo and Gold Star For Robot Boy, were also the first two songs they performed that evening as you can see from the set list above.
For similar GBVness, look into the wonderfully stitched-together Bob Pollard DVD, The Devil Went Home and Puked, available for purchase online at http://rockathonrecords.com/video.html
