Guided by Voices w/Times New Viking 

When: Fri., Jan. 14, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $25-$30
Death Cab for Cutie guitarist and producer Chris Walla once described Guided by Voices’ albums by saying, “There’s lo-fi, and then there’s just shitty.” Sadly, he did not mean this as a compliment. But if there is a sliding scale of recording quality, then you could make the argument that Guided by Voices are “lo-fi,” and Times New Viking are “shitty” — they’ve recorded on VHS tape, for instance — and in this case we mean it as a compliment. The fact that both bands hail from Ohio and are awesome is probably just a coincidence, the fact that they both get lumped into the same too-large “lo-fi” category in spite of not sounding much alike is the fault of music critics, and the fact that they’re both playing on the same bill Friday night is just amazingly good luck for us all.
