PINBACK
9 p.m. Revolution. $12 adv., $15 day of.

For the last 15 years or so, West Coast duo Pinback has been crafting airtight, intricate indie pop with no rough edges at all and not so much as a note out of place. Collaborators have come and gone, but the core of the band has always been Rob Crow, formerly of Thingy and Heavy Vegetable, and Zach Smith of Three Mile Pilot.

I first heard the band when its 2001 album "Blue Screen Life" became one of the inescapable albums of that year. It seemed like everywhere I went that year I heard that album, "White Blood Cells," "Is This It?" and the Shins' "Oh, Inverted World."

Since then, Pinback hasn't been exactly hyper-prolific, instead taking their time crafting three more albums of flawless and unpredictable pop. Opening up the all-ages show is the bizarro TV-theme act JP Inc.
