Indie rock band Guided By Voices will be performing in Bloomington on June 16.  Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the show will begin at 9 p.m at The Bluebird.

The band released its newest album “Space Gun” in March, a 15-song LP that has garnered praise from various outlets including NPR and A.V. Club. 

“It’s a straight-ahead rock-and-roll album with some psychedelic elements,” Doug Gillard, lead guitarist of Guided By Voices, said of “Space Gun.”

The show in Bloomington will begin the third leg of the band’s tour this year. According to Gillard, the presentation of the tour evokes a retro futuristic mood of the early 1960s. 

Gillard said the band has a master list of 60-70 songs selected from a vast repertoire. This master list is continuously evolving as each album is created. Singer-songwriter and leader of the band Robert Pollard then curates a different sequence for each show. 

“I think the band is firing on all cylinders right now,” Gillard said. “We’re having a lot of fun playing together.”

Tickets for the show are $25, and are available for purchase online now.
