GBV @ Irving Plaza on New Year's Eve (more by Chris Gersbeck)
GBV

Guided By Voices is returning to NYC and will headline the McCarren Park Stage on Saturday, June 18! Wavves is going to open the Brooklyn Northside Festival show which is going on sale Friday, April 8, at 10am EST. Tickets are $30 in advance. You can also attempt to get in with a Northside Festival badge.

This show is one day after Beirut headlines the same Brooklyn stage, and a month before Guided By Voices play Pitchfork.

Other confirmed Northside bands include Deervana who hit Brooklyn Bowl on June 19th, and Twin Sister who headline a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

--
ABOUT NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL:


Created by The L Magazine, The Northside Festival, June 16-19, is a four-day celebration of Brooklyn and what's next in Music, Art, Film and Ideas. The best regional, national and global talent will be showcased, all within the walkable radius of Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Visit www.northsidefestival.com

Northside Music:
Over 250 bands will play over the four days at more than 25 venues scattered throughout the neighborhood, the majority of which will be handpicked by some of the most respected labels, bloggers, record stores and other independent tastemakers in the community. Highlights include the return of live music to McCarren Park, with Beirut and Guided By Voices set to headline. Another exciting addition to this year's lineup is Deer Tick, who will be performing as Nirvana tribute band Deervana at Brooklyn Bowl.

Northside Film:
The film component of the festival includes an in-competition DIY Film Festival, as well as a non-competitive screening series. Festival judges include Rosie Perez, Ted Hope and Todd P. The non-competition screening series is curated by The Berlin Film Festival, IFC, Rooftop Films, Film at Lincoln Center, Animation Block Party, and many more.

Northside Art:
On June 18 and 19, the most densely populated arts community in the country will open its doors to the public in a massive Open Studios program in conjunction with Greenpoint Open Studios. Hundreds of artists and galleries will show their latest work to thousands of interested patrons.

Northside Ideas:
As Brooklyn has become a national incubator for new ideas and media, the creators and innovators developing exciting new products and brands will speak on a series of panels about what to expect next.

are they offering refunds for people who paid too much to see their last "we're going away" show? state attorney generals are gonna start suing bands for false retirement scams... if not, i'll meet GBV at the Bowl for a little throwdown

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2011 2:11 PM

This is a $20 ticket at best.

where is the stage? are they reopening the renovated pool, or is it elsewhere in the park?

Beirut, GBV...two bands I saw in the old Sound Fix cafe. nice...

$30 is a bargain. Any of you hummus complainers can smuggle your own warm beer into the Party Xpo and see 14 bands amplified through a 4 channel Crate PA.

Ugh. Why couldn't Bob do the respectable thing and hang it up after 1 GBV-classic tour? GBV-classic will no doubt tour the same setlist ad nauseam until Bob keels onstage.

Posted by Anonymous | April 6, 2011 2:40 PM

bands, please stop doing over-hyped farewell tours if you are just going to come right back:

"...following this album and its ensuing tour, the band will be gone. After twenty-odd years, twenty-odd lineups, and twenty-odd albums, EPs, singles, triples, stolen bases, misdemeanor convictions, and broken hearts, Dayton, OH’s fortunate sons are taking leave of your senses. "

that was then , this is now...

Posted by david z | April 6, 2011 2:41 PM

Special guests include the Arcade Fire and Demi Lovato.

Bob can outdrink you hipsters any day.

Shut your mouth and go see them.

You'll like them.

Yea they're better than your average hipster bands.

I will personally drop-kick any stupid hipster in the balls (or lack thereof) that disses Pollard and/or GBV. I will gladly pay $30 for this.

Stay home and jack off with your hummus-based lube to the sounds of Total Slacker and DOM.

this is simple music news. i would even say it's simply great music news. it really doesn't get more simple than "this band is playing this venue on this date and tickets are on sale at this time for this amount of money". another good one is "this band has an album coming out and you can listen to a song here"

I mostly listen to Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, Rush,F loyd and classic rock. Pearl Jam and Radiohead are pretty much the only two bands making music today that I still listen to.

My friend turned me on to GBV a few years agao and I have never looked back. Pollard is a genius and a madman and his music is timeless...
