Pick a day


"That Guy Was In Guided By Voices"

Not afraid of heading out on a Tuesday? Good on ya, soldier.

The latest band to be lured in by our well set "Hey, here's a town between Portland and the Bay Area" trap is Detective (or DTCV, depending which website you ask). Featuring one-time Guided by Voices member/SPIN critic James Greer, as well as Guylaine Vivarat and Chris Dunn, the relatively new band will drop some serious cool on HumBrews Tuesday night.

Need coolness validation? Check out the clip for DTCV's song "Rhodesian Man" below. Other Tuesday options farther down.

Named after the Jean-Luc Godard film, Los-Angeles based post-punk outfit DTCV sounds like Debbie Harry fronting post-Nico Velvet Underground according to some music writer somewhere.
