Sponic Magazine (http://www.sponiczine.com/article_detail.asp?id=255): "On March 18, GBV played to its biggest audience yet. Dayton's massive Hara Arena - home to many a car show and hair-metal concert - hosted an impressive Ohio lineup including Dayton's Breeders, Cincinnati's Afghan Whigs, and two Columbus punk bands: Gaunt and New Bomb Turks. The Breeders and The Afghan Whigs were flourishing on the airwaves and the packed venue reflected their commercial draw. The show represented bassist Dan Toohey's last live performance with GBV. Significantly, it was also the first time Dave Doughman (of Swearing at Motorists) had seen the band. He had just moved to Dayton that week before, and would later work extensively with the band."

Mitch (http://www.gbv.com/mitcharticle.html): "Not long ago, we did actually play at the Hara Arena with the Breeders, and there were like 5,000 people there. It was so weird, because we d grown up going to these shows, saying man, I d love to play here one day. Goddamn. And then going to that point where you actually step out on the stage at Hara Arena and you look out and see 5,000 people and you re going, Goddamn, this is great. It super-charges you. That s what rock and roll is supposed to be about."
