Perhaps no one in the indie-rock kingdom inspires quite the same chest-pummeling devotion as the shambling Bob Pollard and his troupe of beery veterans. Since reuniting in 2010, the band has released so many albums that it's been hard to keep up: the latest, Cool Planet, the second GBV LP of 2014, is a nice encapsulation of the group's patented raw, hooky guitar pop. Also on board are local faves Crystal Stilts, who touch on the Jesus and Mary Chain, Joy Division and, naturally, the Velvet Underground.
