Dogfish Head Says Cheers To Guided By Voices With BEER Thousand

Bee Thousand

 

Believe it or not, it’s been 20 years since the release of Guided By Voices‘ wildly influential Bee Thousand, and the good folks at Dogfish Head Brewery are celebrating in a big way.

Fans attending the band’s Madison show at the Barrymore Theatre tonight (Friday, June 20) will be treated to a preview of the brewmasters’ brand new BEER Thousand, “an imperial lager, chosen to echo the copious amounts of lager that fueled GBV’s garage recordings, is brewed with 10 grains and 10 hop varieties, and clocks in at 10% ABV.  10x10x10 = BEER Thousand.”  Read more here.

Don’t miss your chance to be among the first to knock back this delicious new brew while bathing in 90’s indie rock glory!  Tickets are still available here.  

Guided By Voices Stun In San Francisco: In Madison TONIGHT (6.20.14)!

Guided By Voices

If these glowing words about Guided By Voices recent Regency performance in San Francisco don’t convince you that tonight’s Madison set is not-to-be-missed, perhaps the review’s accompanying explosive live photos will do the trick!

Heck, even shaky crowd footage of this great show isn’t looking half-bad:

We can’t wait to see the indie rock vets take the Barrymore stage with support from Bobby Bare Jr later this evening.  Tickets are still available here.  

Pollard & Sprout Get The Simon & Garfunkel Treatment

Guided By Voices

Guided By Voices recently got a little help from the always spot-on Funny Or Die team to help promote their latest single, “Bad Love Is Easy To Do.”  Comedians Rob Corddry and Brian Huskey step into the band’s shoes, performing as the very Simon and Garfunkel-esque “Pollard and Sprout” alongside ex-Vivian Girl Katy Goodman and Mighty Boosh actor Rich Fulcher in the new video.  Got all that straight?   Not quite?  Just watch.

GBV will be in Madison for a much less classic folk duo-inspired set at the Barrymore Theater on June 20 with support from Bobby Bare Jr.  Click here to grab your tickets while you still can!
