Guided by Voices at the Gothic Theatre, 6-4-14 (photos, review)

How much is too much? For the typical Guided By Voices fan, the answer to that question is “Never! G-B-V! G-B-V! G-B-V!” Robert Pollard’s enigmatic band had no trouble satisfying a modest group of this ilk at the Gothic Theatre last night with a near-three-hour set -- including three massive encores -- that was filled with almost too many songs to count.

The Jarvik 6 takes its time with moody, modest debut EP

If the music on The Jarvik 6's debut EP feels a little out of time, it's because it is. Matthew Byars, of the experimental Washington, D.C. indie band The Caribbean, began the project a decade ago on his laptop and has worked on it only occasionally since then, finally releasing a four-song EP this month on his own West Main Development label as a limited-edition, 50-copy CDR.
