PICTURE THIS: Matt Pond @ The Roxy, LA 5/23/14
In 2004, matt pond PA released Emblems and last week Matt Pond (now capitalized and PA-less) showed us how good it still sounds. Playing to a crowded room of eager fans, the band performed Emblems start to finish. They eschewed the usual encore farce because, as Pond said, “I’ve got nothing else to do other than play songs.” Which they did, launching straight into a handful of non-Emblems tunes, including “So Much Trouble” and “Starting”. The exuberant “Love to Get Used” from last year’s The Lives Inside the Lines in Your Hand was a particular standout in an overall amazing set.
