But he must, because the Dayton indie-rocker also makes time for creating collages, which he’s been doing longer than he’s been writing songs.

On May 2, Pollard will be at The Irma Freeman Center for Imagination, 5006 Penn Ave. in Garfield, for the opening of the exhibit “Junk Collector and Scrabble King,” which will run through May 23.

“Often satirical, political, dark and sarcastic, his collages can also be whimsical, innocent and uplifting,” according to the gallery.

The opening, is part of the monthly Unblurred: First Fridays on Penn, is from 7 to 10 p.m. with music by ATS and Raised By Wolves.

Pollard brings GBV to Mr. Smalls on May 17, two days before the release of “Cool Planet.”
