This bootleg recording is a Free Beacon exclusive, but I am willing to trade it for a high-quality MP3 or FLAC recording of the May 24 Guided By Voices at the Black Cat, a.k.a., one of the best nights of my and Jay Carney’s lives. “Scare Away the Dark” and Passenger are not really my bag, but Martin O’Malley really kills it here.
