Pink Mountaintops, 1776 

When: Fri., July 22, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10
Pink Mountaintops could have stopped at "Tourist in Your Town." The song, buried at the end of their 2004 self-titled debut, is pure perfection: a jangly and simplistic rock number that feels like it was unearthed from that mysterious Velvet Underground yard-sale acetate from a few years back. It is, simply put, one of my most favorite songs ever. While it's commonplace to consider Pink Mountaintops as the side project to the more popular Black Mountain—a band as essential to stonerdom as an eighth of weed and a vaporizer—I feel it's the other way around. Frontman Stephen McBean is at his best when he twists his lazy vocal drawl around hazy pop songs, sounding like the a long lost Reid brother. Pink Mountaintops' latest, Outside Love, came out a couple years back, so keep your fingers crossed that McBean wins us over with some new material tonight. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
