They say people from the Midwest are friendly and I have found this (for the most part) to be the case.  This could explain why I love the Textbook Committee so much – I mean, other than their ability to use their Guided by Voices covers to rock a Canal Street Tavern full of  GBV’s biggest fans, their Midwestern charm is definitely their next biggest selling point.  I was lucky enough to be at their annual January show at Canal Street Tavern in Dayton.  They hail from Chicago and come to Dayton in January to bring joy to the GBV fans over here who are mired in nasty weather.  I love these guys and can’t wait to see them again!

Here are some of my iPhone photos from the show, I apologize for the stalker-like grainy-ness.
