Pan, Dear Blanca

When: Wed., July 25, 10 p.m. 2012

Last year, Columbia, S.C., quartet Pan issued their debut, a seven-track EP called Post Rock Is Not Dead. The title fit not only because Pan seemed out to prove that Mogwai did, in fact, not come on to die young but also because they seemed to believe in post-rock, playing it with a concision and focus and craft that suggested this is the stuff these four guys would lay down their honor (or, at the least, stylistic flexibility) for. That continues on this year's enthusiastically coined LP, These Are the Things I Love and I Want to Share Them With You. Though Pan largely avoids the lengthy expanses of its predecessors, they do treat these tracks with clear intentions of the same emotional redemption; sometimes, they're good enough to get there. Fellow Columbia travelers Dear Blanca open with a twisted take on blues-rock and party/anti-party tunes. —Grayson Currin
