Pinback, a.k.a. Zach and Rob Crow with a rotating cast of characters, will close out 2010 for Abstract Entertainment, Brian McKenna’s live-production company who has consistently routed touring national acts to the Sacramento Valley. Although its pending release on the boutique label, Temporary Residence Limited, has been delayed for what seems like decades, this short run of December dates should whet the appetite of its fans. Over the course of 12 years, Pinback has released a bevy of EPs, four studio albums (Blue Screen Life is my favorite), and toured all too infrequently. Two thumbs way up. 2708 J Street,
