Museum School Big Rock Show - THIS INCLUDES YOU!

ft. PINBACK & El Ten Eleven

w/ The Color Forty Nine

This Includes You!

This show is to benefit the Special Education Programs at the Museum School, a tuition-free, public, charter school that serves kids in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. The school has a population of 18% of students who qualify for Special Education, almost double the average amount state-wide.  Thanks to the kind generosity of the bands involved, this evening's show will go directly to supporting all students in the classroom. The Museum School includes everyone and this Includes You!

Pinback Presents: The Rob & Zach Show

We have a tendency to take consistency for granted. Like a sunny Southern California day, Pinback have delivered record after record of mightily addictive indie pop since their inception in the late 1990s. Perhaps too melancholic and thoughtful to function as escapist entertainment, that same sense of depth is what made them one of the most reliable bands in indie rock’s three-decade history.
On one hand, their fifth album, Information Retrieved, is the logical and accessible realization of a sound Pinback have been developing and refining for over a decade. However, that consistency that we’ve taken for granted is what makes Information Retrieved such a euphoric surprise; their finest and most fully realized album, a dozen years deep into a career that includes bona fide modern classics like “Good To Sea” and Summer In Abaddon. Simply put, this is better than we ever could have expected. They could have coasted on automatic pilot to another lauded album that likely would have made it onto plenty of year-end lists, but instead they shot the moon, and the result is a major triumph.

The touchstones are still there: Zach Smith‘s stunningly unique bass guitar acrobatics driving both rhythm and melody in lock-step unison; the incredible immediacy of Rob Crow‘s voice that could make a phone book sound compelling; and the musical and lyrical interplay between the two of them that made Pinback so special in the first place. The difference now is their exquisite control over dynamics and a greater emotional resonance throughout. It’s the most complete and soulful Pinback album by a fair distance, the finest moment in the career of a band whose unfettered brilliance we’ve come to count on, but will never again take for granted.

El Ten Eleven

Previously, El Ten Eleven created instrumental pop, but has since decided on a shift to electro-dance.

The Color Forty Nine

the color forty nine hails from san diego where pretty much everything is nice. collectively, the members of the band have payed throughout the world with previous and current projects such as little white teeth, the black heart procession, the album leaf, maquiladora, system’s officer and the john meeks band. rehearsing and recording in the attic of a 1910 home in sherman heights, influences include good food before music, better wine during music, and the beautiful city of tijuana just fifteen minutes down the road.

Currently, the band has a number of songs recorded and will be recording more in November at SDRL in San Diego. These songs will shape the first record due out in early 2018, along with a string of videos to be directed by San Diego filmmaker, Grant Reinero and others.
