Liz Phair Marks 30th Anniversary of ‘Exile In Guyville’ With Tour

In 1993, Liz Phair released her first album, Exile in Guyville, a two-disc track-by-track rejoinder to the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street. It was a bold and audacious move for any artist: using a debut to take on one of the greatest albums of all-time by one of the greatest bands of all-time

These days, Guyville regularly finds its way on to those greatest of all-time lists itself. Now, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, Phair is hitting the road to play the entire 18-track achievement in its entirety, backed by a full band (Phair will play non-Guyville hits, as well).
