GBVDB.com 10th Anniversary

This website was launched on 11/3/2003. To put that in perspective:
  • GBV hadn't yet broken up yet (the "final" show was 12/31/2004 and GBV became active again in 2010)
  • Robert Pollard has released SIXTEEN solo albums since then. And another is just around the corner (Blazing Gentlemen)
  • The Fading Captain Series label was still going strong.
  • The following side projects did not yet exist: Boston Spaceships, Carbon Whales, Cosmos, Keene Brothers, Mars Classroom, The Moping Swans, Psycho And The Birds, Teenage Guitar, The Sunflower Logic, The Takeovers
  • Circus Devils only had 3 albums. Now they have 11.

The band played alot of songs off the yet to be released Alien Lanes album that Bob mentions was going to be released in January 1995 on Matador. Alien Lanes didn't end up getting released until 4/4/95. This show also confirms that the 11/2/94 show that was previously thought to be CBGB's in NY was actually Providence, RI as Bob says "We were in Rhode Island last night. In Providence" during the 11/3/94 show. This show was recorded by Michael Train on a Sony D7 handheld DAT and a Sony external mic. The show was later put on CD using the D7 analog outs into a Marantz CD reecorder. These AAC files were ripped from the CD and are the current best source for this show.
