Liz Phair announces ‘Girly-Sound to Guyville’ release and tour


June 22 should be a damn national holiday, as it marks the release date of Liz Phair’s debut album Exile in Guyville. We warned you back in January that the record was one of a bunch celebrating its 25th anniversary this year — 1993 forever, y’all — and now Phair has some exciting news to honor the occasion.

On May 4, Matador Records will release the Girly-Sound to Guyville box-set, which Phair says is a remaster of the influential LP and her early Girly-Sound cassettes, which were never officially released. As if that wasn’t enough good news, Phair will be taking Girly-Sound to Guyville on the road for six dates this spring, and included in the trek is a June 6 stop at The Sinclair in Cambridge.

Tickets to that show, which incredibly also features Soccer Mommy as opener (!!!), go on sale March 23 at noon. You might say tickets for this one will go fast, yeah.


“A nostalgic audio-odyssey, teleporting fans back to a glorious moment in the past when irony came with a masters degree and wallets were attached to jeans with chains,” Phair says. “Make Guyville your next binge-listening location. Sometimes all it takes a box set to remind us that a music scene is really just one big dysfunctional family.”

God bless.
