In this Dream Tour segment, the indie rock band, NO WIN, reveals who he would want on his ultimate tour lineup. You can check out their picks, after the break.
NO WIN’s dream tour is an extensive U.S. run with Guided By Voices. Not much else to it other than that. It would be nice if any manufacturer of cheap domestic beer kept us fully stocked for the duration and if Bob could teach me how to high kick. GBV is the greatest living rock band and I would follow them into the depths of hell.
Actually, now that I think about it I should go ahead and dream big. GBV is on the whole run headlining. We’re always first of three because I know my place and because we finish early to start drinking. The direct support spot is Superchunk on the east coast, Dinosaur Jr. in the Pacific North West, Teenage Fanclub on the lower west coast, Bash&Pop in the midwest but Paul Westerberg shows up to the Minneapolis show and sits in with them to do some mats songs. Jeff Tweedy is there too but he mostly just wants to hang on the bus and tell stories.
We don’t tour the whole world because the flights are long. We have plenty of days off and for some reason, we can all afford buses and drivers for the buses. Nothing makes sense, rock and roll works, and we all survive to tell the story (arrogantly) to a younger generation of would-be indie rockers.
