Modest Mouse Tickets

Modest Mouse tickets - Modest Mouse Tour

Modest Mouse Tour Schedule

Since first emerging on the indie rock scene in 1993 Modest Mouse of been one of the best and most popular acts in the genre. After their breakthrough with 2004's Good News for People Who Love Bad News Modest Mouse have become one of the most popular rock bands in the world. They have long been known for their incredible live shows and as the band has had more money and time to devote to production values for their tour, Modest Mouse has become an even better live act. You may have heard Modest Mouse on the radio but until you have seen them performing live you have not fully experienced the power of their music.

Modest Mouse has a series of tour dates lined up for Spring 2014 beginning with a show at McMenamins Crystal Ballroom in Portland, Oregon on May 1st followed by a second performance at the same venue on the following night. The band will take part in the Shakey Knees Music Festival in Atlanta, Georgia on May 10th and perform at the Hangout Music Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama from May 16th through 18th as well as at Boston Calling Music Festival from May 23rd through the 25th. The rest of May will see Modest Mouse performing headlining concerts in Charlotte, New Orleans, Miami Beach, Orlando, Richmond, Norfolk, Bethlehem, and Cooperstown, New York. In August Modest Mouse will play at the Osheaga Music and Arts Festival in Montreal which is held from the 1st through the 3rd.


About the Band

In 1993 Isaac Brock, Jeremiah Green, and Eric Judy got together in Isaaquah, Washington to form the indie rock band Modest Mouse. Influenced by similar minded artists like Built to Spill and the bands on Olympia's K Records, Modest Mouse quickly began making a name for themselves in Washington. They recorded their first EP Blue Cadet 3 Do You Connect in 1994 and released it on K Records. The band released their first two full lengths, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About and The Lonesome Crowded West, on Up Records before moving to a major label. Since then they have released three full lengths on Epic Records: The Moon & Antarctica, Good News for People Who Love Bad News, and We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. In addition to their five studio albums, Modest Mouse has released several EPs, compilation tracks, and 7 inch singles. The band now stands not only as one of the most successful indie rock bands of all time but also one of the most prolific and influential even though their last full length album came out in 2007. Modest Mouse continues to tour and write new music but have yet to get around to recording and releasing much of their newer stuff.


Breakthrough

In 2004 Modest Mouse released their second major label album, Good News for People Who Love Bad News. After spending years developing a grass roots following that attended every Modest Mouse show they could and bought every release, this would finally be the album that brought the band mainstream success. The album's first single, Float On, became a smash hit and the second single Ocean Breathes Salty was another big hit. The strength of the two singles propelled the album to platinum status.


The Experience

Time appeared to slow down in the days leading up to the night of the concert, but finally as the lights lower you begin to see the talented group Modest Mouse making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the band members pick up their instruments each other signalling that they are ready to begin. A hush falls over the crowd as the band busts in to some of their biggest hits, and plays them all one after another. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. The entire venue is drenched in beautiful noise as Modest Mouse bring their soaring harmonies and indie rock sound to the forefront. You will be wondering if this is the future of pop music or the future of rock. Either way, you are witnessing one of the most exciting and fresh bands of the past ten years at the height of their powers, so sit back and enjoy. The high energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along. If there is just one concert you attend in the next few months make sure it is the Modest Mouse.


Trivia

The band takes its name from a quote from the short story The Mark on the Wall by Virginia Woolfe. Front man Isaac Brock also has a side project Ugly Cassanova which released one album, Sharpen Your Teeth, on Sub Pop as well as provided several songs for the soundtrack to the movie 180 Degrees South.
