Thursday, January 31: Pinback @ Crescent Ballroom

After a five-year break, Pinback is back and is better than ever. Not that this San Diego math rock-meets subdued pop band really went anywhere -- the group has been good about consistent touring since the release of 2007's Autumn of the Seraphs.

It's just that duo Rob Crow and Zach Smith took a break from recording Pinback songs to focus on raising kids, releasing solo albums, and the reunion of Smith's first band, Three Mile Pilot. Revived, musicians headed back to the studio last year for Information Retrieved, which fits perfectly into Pinback's canon of muddled songs about fish and random numbers.

Over the course of their 15-year career, the duo has favored a revolving door approach, but have settled into a groove as a compact three-piece to translate Information Retrieved for the stage. The shows have felt great to Crow. "Everybody seems to like it more now," he says. "Everybody agrees these are the best shows that we've ever played," -- Melissa Fossum
