Guided By Voices to play New York New Year’s Eve gig

Reformed 'classic' line-up set to ring in 2011

Guided By Voices have announced they will play a New Year’s Eve show in New York.

The band, who reformed their “classic” line-up earlier in October to play their label Matador’s 21st birthday gigs in Las Vegas, will perform at Irving Plaza on December 31.

The show is reminiscent of the 2002 joint New Year’s Eve gig Guided By Voices did with The Strokes.

There is no word yet whether Guided By Voices will tour more extensively.
