Guided By Voices in Austin, 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
GBV

Guided by Voices start their tour this weekend and will hit NYC for a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom on May 23. That tour wraps up in June but, as Robert Pollard inferred in our interview with him, GBV will be back in the NY area for three four shows after that: NYC's Irving Plaza on July 11, then Huntington, NY's The Paramount on August 22 and Asbury Park, NJ's The Stone Pony on August 23.

UPDATE: they're also playing Toad's Place in CT on 7/10.

Your first chance to get tickets to those three shows (not CT) will be with an exclusive BrooklynVegan presale beginning Thursday morning (5/15) at 9 AM. Check back first thing Thursday morning for the presale password.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday (5/16) at noon.

Guided by Voices new album, Cool Planet, came out this week. Updated tour dates are listed below...
