Matt Pond PA, Bobby Long

When: Sat., May 22, 9 p.m. 2010

Matt Pond PA closes this show just as they would most any baseball game—they've got one great pitch. The band's baroque pop shines like a diamond yielding a rainbow of beatific swelling chords and shimmering sonic warmth. It's tender and sweet as a Care Bear dipped in melancholy. You might say they've perfected that sound across their eight-album career, except that they accomplished that around the time of 2002's twin releases The Green Fury and The Nature of Maps. Since, they've only been reiterating the move. Sure, it's a curmudgeonly complaint given the quality and consistency, but sometimes even a great song gets old. —Chris Parker
