Picture This: Pinback + Roland @ Bottom of the Hill, San Francisco 2/8/15
Pinback played an amazing set to a packed house at Bottom of the Hill in San francisco. Tracks ranged from new and old, but the crowd was pleased all the same. They have a large catalog and yet are able to both keep the continuity of their signature sound and introduce new elements that keep it fresh. We hope to see plenty more Pinback shows in the near future.
Roland opened the night and honestly, the crowd wasn’t quite prepared for quite this heavy of a band. After minds adjusted to what they were expecting, things finally clicked. Every song followed with loud cheers. Roland mixes odd time signatures, even within a song, complex drum patterns and layers in mathy melodic guitars.
