Skip Game of Thrones and see Guided by Voices instead, June 8 at The Showbox

Okay we know you’re been waiting all week to find out what happens next on Game of Thrones, but don’t you think you could put your Sunday evening to a better use?

Guided_by_Voices_01_rtg_2014_PPHow about setting the DVR and getting out from in front of the box to check out one of the godfathers of indie-rock Guided By Voices, beginning at 7 p.m. Sunday, June 8 at the Showbox.

The band is primarily known for its prodigious output (they’ve released six albums since reforming in 2012) and lofi recording style. Live however, GBV transforms into high-energy rock gods. Don’t miss it, Jon Snow can wait.

About Shawn Skager

Shawn Skager is just an everyday joe like you, who loves music and is lucky enough to be able to write about it. When he's not enjoying long walks on the beach, getting caught in the rain, pina coladas and cheesy 70s music by guys named Rupert, Shawn can usually be found in the Northwest Convergence Zone radio studio doing either the Northwest Music Scene radio show or the Hooligan Honky Tonk Radio Hour. And just for the record, Shawn believes that Rush's exclusion from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Hank Williams Sr.'s exclusion from the Grand Ol' Opry are crimes against humanity.
