|This digital release was part of the one-year HOT FREAKS subscription started during the 2020 pandemic that delivered weekly emails on Tuesdays that contained sneak previews of brand new songs, plus rarities, never-before-heard tracks, demos, live concert recordings, rare photos and videos, recording secrets, exclusive swag offers, and many more surprises from deep within the Guided By Voices vaults. HOT FREAKS subscription cost was $100 for one year for exclusive access to downloads and streaming content (with easy-to-use apps for phones or computer).
HOT FREAKS - Week 11
Guided By Voices - Live from The Metro in Chicago, IL - July 11, 1998
Robert Pollard, Doug Gillard, Greg Demos, Jim MacPherson
This rare show with the four-piece GBV line-up took place several weeks after Robert Pollard's Waved Out was released on June 23. Many of the songs played would not be released until 1999 on Do The Collapse (and b-sides, EPs) including "Hold On Hope" which was performed for the first time.
