Pinback rocks the Merced Theatre

San Diego indie-rock band Pinback played to a large audience at the Merced Theatre on Saturday – the band’s first local appearance.

Led by Rob Crow and Zach Smith, the band is “at heart of the some of the most complex, postmodern indie pop happening on the West Coast,” according to the group’s biography on, written by Nate Cavalieri.

The band’s name is a reference to a character from the cult classic film “Dark Star.”

The show was opened by local band Awahnichi, and presented by RC Essig’s Love Your Productions.
