Local brewery manager pops the question before Guided By Voices' set at Springsfest

No one has ever said that Guided by Voices’ music is for lovers, but, well, maybe they should.

Jared Pierce certainly did one of the most romantic things that has ever happened before a GBV set when the dropped down on his knees and popped the question to Rebecca Reid, his girlfriend of three years.

In front of friends and strangers at Springsfest, she said “yes.” 

Reid, a Phoenix, Ariz. native, was repping the Gem City big time at the Yellow Springs festival Saturday, July 6.

She rocked a T-shirt that read: “Dayton As F#$K.” 

Dayton.com contributing photographer Tom Gilliam captured the epic moment where two GBV fans made that commitment to get hitched.

Pierce, the manager of Branch & Bone Artisan Ales at 905 Wayne Ave. in Dayton’s South Park neighborhood, beamed the day after the engagement as he worked behind the bar. 

Appropriately he wore the new GBV T-shirt he picked up at Springsfest.
