Pinback @ Northsix

Do people still listen to Pinback? After this sold out show at Northsix, apparently so. Unfortunately I missed openers Pleaseeasaur who signed to Comedy Central or something. Rob Crow donned a massive goatee (and a few extra pounds) and his voice was pretty good throughout the entire night. Tonight was a rare occurrence where the acoustics at Northsix were perfect for the type of music being performed. They played all their “hits” and the best ones were when Rob and Zach Smith traded vocals. Although their songs contain poppy hooks and general mass appeal, they have some delightful intricacies. They played all my favorites including “Blood on the Wall”. An interesting moment was in mid-song Rob got off stage and darted to the bathroom to relieve himself. Bravo to this “OC band”. ha
