Pinback at the Ritz

SERAPHS RETURNED: After spending half a decade in silence, indie rock vets Pinback come to San Jose.

SERAPHS RETURNED: After spending half a decade in silence, indie rock vets Pinback come to San Jose.

One of the best bands to come from indie rock’s late ’90s-early ’00s golden age, Pinback inspired a generation of musicians to stray from chords, distortion and just about every other standard rock trope. When bands like Franz Ferdinand and Yeah Yeah Yeahs went for angularity, Pinback went for the gracefully slanted. When Modest Mouse transitioned to stadium-size positivity, Pinback retained the quiet experimentalism of a bedroom project. Members Rob Crow and  Zach Smith have never stopped making music in their various other projects, but it’s been six years since a new Pinback record. Does this tour harken new music? Let’s hope.
