Dayton Bands Entering New Stages
By Nick Weiser, Pop Music Writer

Local bands are making up and breaking up all over the place this week.

Figure 4. or Fig. 4 as the group prefers, is back together, and tonight the three man band will be playing it first gig in Dayton in nearly a year.

Fig. 4. made up of bassist Dan Toohey, guitarist Toby Sprout and drummer John Peterson, will be playing some of its most popular songs along with eight new compositions. Tonight's show at Gillys, 132 S. Jefferson St. starts at 9:30 and tickets are $2.50 at the door.

Originally, Guided By Voices was scheduled to share the bill with Fig. 4. but rumor has it that the four members of GBV have parted company. GBV's Bob Pollard, formerly of the Dayton band, 86, is such a fine songwriter it would be a shame if his songs went unheard. Taking Guided By Voices place tonight will be Pleasures Pale.

Letter written by Matt Sweeney (in Chavez). Little did he know that he would soon be touring and opening for GBV. One of the folks Matt turned onto GBV was Michael Azzerad (contributing writer to Rolling Stone - he reviewed Bee Thousand - 4 Stars) and the Music Editor for SonicNet.
