Across the Pond

Posted by Jeff Miranda September 28, 2007 04:54 PM


Despite the humid, summer-like temperature, last night's Matt Pond PA show at the Paradise Rock Club embodied the perfect autumn evening, combining Pond's slow burning croon with a stage decorated with fall foliage. My colleague Danielle and I danced and jived through Pond's hour-plus set, which mostly included songs from its new, meatier album, "Last Light" and 2005's "Several Arrows Later."

Though Pond & Co. delivered a top notch performance (the songs felt more layered than prior shows I've seen), the stoic crowd (who mostly seemed of the bro-dude persuasion) didn't move a muscle. Unless you count the obnoxious group of kids who kept shouting "New Hampshire!" in between songs.

To my disappointment, Pond obliged.
