Dayton, OH Mayor Declares July “Guided By Voices Month”

    It is easy to blame government officials for the bad things that happen in a city. Crime wave? Power outage? Bad weather? Blame it on the mayor. But sometimes, even in 2012, politicians use their power to make awesome decisions. That’s what happened when Dayton, Ohio mayor Gary Leitzell declared July 2012 to be Guided By Voices Month, in honor of what the edict calls “one of the most influential bands to ever come out of Dayton, Ohio.”

    What does this mean for Guided By Voices and for the good citizens of Dayton? Well, it’s unclear, but right now it seems like a free pass to crack a beer and sing lustily along to Bee Thousand. [P4k]
