Pinback, Crescent Ballroom, 1/31/13
|Pinback performs at Crescent Ballroom.|
Last Night: Pinback at Crescent Ballroom.
Personal Bias: I've been a fan ever since a friend played "Loro" for me. I remember buying Autumn of the Seraphs when it was first released.
The Crowd: Tall guys with glasses mouthing the lyrics.
Overheard in the Crowd: "Someone's smoking good weed" during "A Request."
Rob Crow on the Kind of Star Wars Action Figures He Buys: "I still buy Star Wars toys, but I never buy Darth Vader toys or TIE fighters or anything like that. I'm all about the cool guys' stuff, the B-wings, X-wings, landspeeders, things of this nature, Luke Skywalker stuff. I'll go Boba Fett because he's rogue, but I love that there's heroes. Heroes go through a hero's quest and it comes out rad at the end. I admit, it would be nice to have a real hero. The prequels ruined so much of that. All it has to do with is midichlorian bullshit, who cares?"
Random Notebook Dump: All of these guys awkwardly swaying back and forth look like they're trying to slow dance with themselves.
