As you’ve probably heard, Liz Phair is releasing a deluxe expanded edition of Exile in Guyville, her legendary double-album debut that kept so many of us swooning for the majority of 1993, and whose off-the-blocks brilliance somehow diminished the rest of her output forever.

But that’s beside the point, which is this: Exile in Guyville remains a start-to-finish masterpiece. To salute this fact, tomorrow night Three Imaginary Girls take over Chop Suey for Exile in {Imaginary} Girlville, wherein a plethora of local bands/musicians—including Visqueen’s Rachel Flotard, Ms. Led’s Lesli Wood, Team Gina, Tennis Pro, and Throw Me the Statue—tackle Exile in Guyville’s 18 miraculous tracks in order.

Nine acts, two tracks each, with events commencing at 9pm (with co-hosting duties supplied by yours truly.) No spoilers here, except that Throw Me the Statue will be playing my personal favorite Guyville track. More info here, see you there.

I'm practicing all my moves, memorizing stupid rules...

The show was awesome! The M. Bison "Canary" stole my heart and stole the show.
