Picks: Pinback

[MUSIC] WEDNESDAY, JAN. 16

We have this pal, Alan, who in college adored and breathlessly extolled bass-driven, San Diego act Three Mile Pilot. This annoyed us, so we often made fun of him and his beloved band. Fast-forward 10 years later, when we heard 3MP bassist Zach Smith’s other band, Pinback. We loved it, especially Rob Crow’s melodic vocals and Smith’s double-jointed (and equally melodic) basslines. Sorry, Alan — you were onto something. 8 p.m.; Hard Rock Cafe, 3771 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 733-7625, $18-$22.
