Liz Phair to Perform ‘Exile in Guyville’ in NYC
To celebrate the seminal opus' 15th anniversary, the indie rock luminary will perform the entire album acoustically June 25 at Hiro Ballroom.
As the icing on the cake atop the recent rash of rockers performing their landmark records track-for-track, Liz Phair will wield an acoustic guitar June 25, descend on New York City’s Hiro Ballroom, and strum out her time-honored 1993 album Exile in Guyville in its entirety to celebrate its 15-year anniversary.
Tickets go on sale this Wednesday, May 21, but exact details have not been announced.
New York fans will not be the only beneficiaries: Shows in San Francisco and Chicago will be announced in the coming weeks.
As previously announced, Phair’s Guyville will re-released via ATO records June 24 with additional tunes, including B-sides and previously unreleased demos, as well as a DVD on the indie rock scene in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood, featuring interviews with Ira Glass of NPR’s This American Life, actor John Cusack, producer Steve Albini, and members of Urge Overkill.
