FREE Guided By Voices show for CBGB Festival in Central Park

I hear you. You need music on Saturday afternoons. Otherwise your weekend would be a total bummer. You also can’t afford another cover charge because you’re broke and you need lunch money for when you go to that job that doesn’t pay you enough.

Well never fear, Guided By Voices is playing a FREE show at the Central Park Summerstage on Saturday, accompanied by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The War on Drugs, and Cloud Nothings. The concert is part of the CBGB festival, which is also offering a host of other concerts from July 5th to the 8th (that’s Thursday to Sunday in case you were wondering), but you probably already knew that.

In addition there is to be a free show on the 7th at Times Square but CBGB has not released the lineup so all I can say is be there AND be square. HAHAHAHAHA – GET IT?

Now back to my original point:

To be sure, Summerstage isn’t the kind of underground, bro-free scene you can brag about to your friends. Still, you can’t argue with free shows by the garage rock/power pop legend Guided By Voices and alt-throwback rockers The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. Anybody who does is a damned Bolshevik and you can quote me on that.

To clarify:

Guided By Voices

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

The War on Drugs

Cloud Nothings

For FREE.

yeah.
