Wednesday: Guided By Voices at Mohawk outdoor. By now the lore of elementary school teacher turned rock ’n’ roller Robert Pollard is long entrenched, and adding up Ohio band Guided By Voices’ complete discography might break a calculator. But there’s still some interesting turns here, as the band tours behind its new album “Space Gun,” not the least of which is the presence in the current lineup of Bobby Bare Jr., son of the country music legend and an accomplished indie-rocker in his own right. Park Doing opens. $25. 6:30 p.m. doors. 912 Red River St. mohawkaustin.com. — P.B.
