Since reforming in 2010, Guided By Voices has been releasing albums and singles at a blistering pace, releasing six studio albums in that time – with two so far in 2014 alone. Of course, a lot of those songs are 1- to 2-minute indie rock ditties, but still ... .

Many of us who grew up listening to the likes of the Replacements and R.E.M. put Guided By Voices in that pioneering mix of lo-fi rockers that paved the road for the indie rockers of today. While they are a little grayer now, GBV can still blast out a 50-song set, no problem.

Don't believe me? Stop in at the Waiting Room on Tuesday (June 3) and see for yourself. The band plays that night with Bobby Bare Jr. warming the stage beginning at 8 p.m.

Get charged up for the show by watching the video to "Planet Score" from GBV's first album of 2014, Motivational Jumpsuit. It stars Matt Jones (Badger from Breaking Bad) and actors/brothers Rob Corddry (The Daily Show, Hot Tub Time Machine) and Nate Corddry. Just click on the link to see it.
