Adam Long is the heart of his melodically robust,  indie-folk-rock-with-pop-hooks sound. Adam Long is the heart of his melodically robust, indie-folk-rock-with-pop-hooks sound.

Songwriter and UVA alumnus Adam Long has popped in and out of various groups on the Virginia music circuit for the better part of a decade. His current group finds Long writing the lyrics while his friends play the tunes. Scrapping early names like Adam Long and the Quest for the Grapefruits, the band settled on Adam’s Plastic Pond. Running the gamut from Southern lap steel to folk ballads and sunny guitar pop, the band shows off jangling hooks and bright, lucid vocals—perhaps most notably in the playfully modest single “A Brief History of English Literature.” Modern Medication co-headlines and Carl Anderson opens.

Saturday 1/25. $7, 8pm. The Southern, 103 S. First St., 977-5590.
