Pinback at MHoW (more by Tim Griffin)

It's been a long time coming. Pinback deserves a documentary about them.Currently $95 into its $1100 goal, you can contribute to the cause at Kickstarter.
They've been carving their way through the indie rock scene over the last decade. This ultimately private, unconventional, yet fan friendly band has definitely made their mark on the music industry and more importantly their fans.
I have been granted access to join [Pinback] and step behind the scenes where no one else has quite gone before. This was an idea that had always been floating about but never really picked up any steam. I asked Rob Crow, who's a good friend of mine, about why there hasn't been one... the band is humble and, well... private... they're not a typical touring band... they're not really a typical band at all... but I think that's what's so appealing about them. So, as it goes, I am independently embarking on this journey, albeit with Pinback's blessing. I am doing it as a labor of love for the band and the acknowledgement that so many out there would love to see more about this amazing group.
Soon they're heading to Europe and while I have most of the costs covered thus far, I need a bit more help to make sure this part of journey goes off as planned.
I have already joined them on other legs of their most recent past tours. Slowly, I am adding up footage. I am also in the process of shooting as many interviews with the eclectic group of people who were past touring band members who are now strewn across the country.
Please, help support this amazing this amazing project. ^_^

Pinback are hitting the road this fall. The San Diego band, whose last LP was 2007's Autumn of The Seraphs on Touch N Go, will be premiering some material from their upcoming Temporary Residence Limited debut, not due until Spring 2010. One of the new dates is on Devil's Night (10/30, apropo for Senor Goblin Cock?) at Irving Plaza. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday, 6/19 at noon here. They play Halloween in Boston.
Orphan has a few dates of their own as well, including a string of dates with the great Malkuth, none of which are in NYC. However, the band IS playing NYC on June 21st as part of the Tom Tom Magazine Benefit at Public Assembly, and again on August 16th with Night Horse and Tournament at Union Pool. Night Horse has also scheduled a second NYC date, at Pianos three days earlier (8/13) with TK Webb & The Visions, Barracks.
All Orphan, Night Horse, and Pinback dates are below..

In between sets a bunch of what looked like DudeBros wearing ringer tee's that said Goblin Cock Crew came out and set up equipment. A few minutes later the band pops out of no where in the now famous druid cloaks.That review came from a the Dallas show earlier on the tour. Last night (2/11) Goblin Cock played Highline Ballroom in NYC with Orphan and Warship. Rob told Wired that he'll be working on Pinback again when this tour is over. More pictures from the NY show, and GC's new video, below...
Basically, the band dresses up not only on stage but in preparation to go on stage. Greatness.
The set was a mix of tracks from the old album, Bagged and Boarded and songs from the new disc, Come with Me If You Want to Live. The only band members face that is visible is Rob Crow's, the rest of the band look like some kind of Anton Levay rejects that do nothing but throw devil horns.
The stage was intermittently lit up by strobe lights and was covered with skulls. The keyboard player actually had black pom-poms that he gave to some chick in the audience,
Did I mention how badass this show was??? [Indie-Verse]
"Goblin Cock is a band from beyond time, beyond space, beyond your naive concept of dimension in METAL. Since before your pathetic "god" had supposedly "created" you and your kind, Lord Phallus was hunkered in a cybertimeship/fun dungeon skating the layers of what was considered "true metal"in all societies and in all generations. Eventually His Majesty realized that he really didnt care and launched a full-scale war against bland metal with and emphasis on ACTUALLY HAVING A GOOD TIME! "Bagged and Boarded" is the first assualt on your laughable 5 senses (Lord Phallus and his kind have 32). Expect a future double whammy in the form of "Come With Me if You Want to Live" - a collection of new supercharged action-metal wonderhits, and "Dragonfucker" - the 20+ minute uberpiece with a bside of numerous BRUTAL cover songs (the roaches, the osmonds, and the monkees have been rumored). arrrgghh! -"Total" Dick McThinkseeknowseverything"As promised, Rob Crow's hooded metal project Goblin Cock are going on tour soon, and that includes a February 9th show in NYC at Highline Ballroom. Tickets are on sale. NY's own Warship ("the crushing new project by From Autumn To Ashes members Francis Mark (vocals/drums) and Rob Lauritsen (guitar/bass)"). open all dates, which are listed below...
