Matador Records, the all-American independent label, is celebrating 21 years of being in business in October with a get together titled Matador at Twenty One. Where does the all-American label go for such an event? Las Vegas, baby! Of course. It's more American than apple pie and wars of choice. To make it big, they've reunited Guided By Voices, in its classic lineup from 1993-1996.
That means the Guided By Voices that includes Robert Pollard, Tobin Sprout, Mitch Mitchell, Greg Demos and Kevin Fennell. Other Matador bands appearing include Sonic Youth, Pavement, Yo La Tengo, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Superchunk.
Billboard is reporting that Matador at Twenty One will also make appearances in other cities besides Las Vegas.
Matador at Twenty One will happen at the Palms Casino & Resort on October 1st - 3rd.
