Robert Pollard of Guided By Voices at Bluebird, St. Louis, 10/10/08
One can always count on a few things happening at a Robert Pollard show. First, everyone in attendance will consume an obscene amount of cheap booze. Second, Pollard and whatever band he�s fronting will pack a staggering number of punchy, no-frills indie rock songs into a marathon-paced set. And finally, in attendance will be a core group of rabid followers who know the words to each and every one of Pollard�s 1,000-plus songs.

For a man of 50, Bob Pollard still has some rock star moves.

Bassist Jason Narducy borrowed Todd McKenzie's camera and attempted to capture Decemberists drummer John Moen in action. No dice.
