The resurrected Robert Pollard played the 9:30 Club last night. I went with R, M, A, M, and T.

New meme watch: "Love is Stronger Than Witchcraft." (Click link for mp3, though the version last night felt about three times as fast.)

Return of Olson meme(s) watch: "Dancing Girls and Dancing Men." (mp3)

Is Pollard feeling old? "Call me Uncle Bob," he said at least twice.

Pollard's favorite new song: "Fresh Threats, Salad Shooters And Zip Guns."

Song most easily adapted to people in my world: "Serious Bird-Woman, I'm Attracted To You."

Best review of the show from a new fan: "I haven't understood a single word yet, but this guy rocks!"

Best review of the new band members: "Check out the beefcakes on bass and guitar!"

Much of the show previewed the new 2-disc release From a Compound Eye. Pollard did a few tracks from a new Stephen Soderbergh film, Bubble. The last half hour he brought out GBV hits like "Tractor Rape Chain," "Things I will Keep," "Game of Pricks," and "Back to the Lake." The last song is always my cure for the professional codes of the District.
