Tppecanoe and Bob Too

I once saw Tammy and the Amps (later shortened to the Amps) open for Guided By Voices at the Southgate House in Newport, KY.

The Amps played about 2/3 Breeders' songs. These guys from above the band yelled for "Tippecanoe" through the entire set until Kim Deal obliged and played "Tipp City."

The GBV set was glorious to say the least. Bob Pollard was in his typical drunken form. This was maybe the last time I can remember audience members finishing songs for Bob near the end of his set. They unveiled "The Official Ironmen Rally Song" which I promptly purchased along with my Alien Lanes t-shirt.
