Jon Lindsay, The Small Ponds 

When: Thu., Aug. 19, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: Free

Like Zach Condon of the eclectic chamber pop band Beirut, Jon Lindsay of Charlotte looks a bit like a precocious kid—fair-faced, solemn, maybe a tad self-serious—but he arranges like a wizened master. While Condon favors international and classical flourishes, Lindsay appears to be an egalitarian pop music junkie, with shared love for Burt Bacharach and The Beatles, John Vanderslice and pop-punk. His latest, Escape From Plaza-Midwood, decorates winking lyrical recollections with broken textures that make a wonderful, unlikely whole. The Small Ponds are Caitlin Cary and Matt Douglas, local veterans who write and sing with simpatico grace.—Grayson Currin
