The Long Winters

PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Saturday December 07 | $14.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 
[MODERN TRAD-POP] The Long Winters’ singer-songwriter John Roderick made a splash in the early ’00s with the excellent Americana-inflected pop effort When I Pretend to Fall, a record that applied the airtight assembly of ’60s pop hits with the jangly delivery most alt-rock groups of the ’90s pilfered from R.E.M. Besides an LP in 2006, Roderick spent the latter half of the decades resting on his proverbial laurels, which brings us to the requisite decade-old anniversary tour of his 2003 effort. Roderick has a golden ear for energetic arrangements built from traditional components, and this is as good an opportunity as any to find him revisiting the peak of his career up to this point.
