Pioneer Courthouse Square (map) Downtown

Cass McCombs is for real. His personality might be prickly and his tenderly soft songs might be drowned out by a Blue Line train rumbling through the Square, but damn if McCombs isn't a truly special performer. Headlining this show on the bricks is Band of Horses, touring in supporting of long-player number three, Infinite Arms. The album shines, and not in that it glimmers, no; it shines like "Shine," the woefully dated token hit from Collective Soul. The Horsies' first album for Columbia, and first away from the Sub Pop nest, is glossy and uninspired, a hollow recording that is frigid and distant when compared to the warmth and personal appeal that was so present in Cease to Begin and Everything All the Time. Oh heaven, let your light shine down. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
