upbeat instrumental w/ alternative grunge, 9 p.m.
Indie instrumental rockers Pan craft songs that escalate to a crescendo of speed strumming that leave you just enough time to contemplate your existence before you are swept into an echoing whirlwind of life-changing drumbeats, all of which fades into a sigh of sweet tranquility. If there’s one word to describe Pan’s sound, it’s joy, right there in its purist form. “Pan formed early in 2010 with a crew of Columbia-based talent under the idea to add to the dwindling instrumental scene while popularizing a method and sound that was novel to the area and genre,” says Pan’s violinist Kayla Breitwieser. The Tin Roof show is part of Pan’s 40 Days, 40 Nights summer tour. “We will also be in the studio this summer/early fall finishing up our new EP. You can hear one of the new songs, ‘Baton,’ on our website, youarethepan.com,” says Breitwieser. —Kalyn Oyer MONDAY
