White House Press Secretary Jay Carney isn’t just the world’s most important publicist; he’s also a self-proclaimed Guided By Voices super fan. He perviously described Dayton, Ohio as “home of the Wright brothers, the Dayton Peace Accords and Guided by Voices, the greatest rock-and-roll band in the modern era.” He also once accidentally confused Senator Mitch McConnell as “Mitch Mitchell”, guitarist of GBV. So, when the legendary rock band rolled into Washington, DC last night who might have showed up to introduce the band Yep — Carney.

Below, watch video of Carney’s intro plus a few other photos, including one of he and his son watching GBV play from the side stage (via DCist). In fact, Hugo Carney took advantage of the view and captured a video, which he shared via his Instagram.

So that is Jay Carney #Whitehouse #Obama #gbv he likes this band.
