Modest Mouse

Hometown: Issaquah, Washington
Tags: rock, alternative

Under the close tutelage of Indie Rock kingpin Calvin Johnson, Modest Mouse have cultivated a folk-tinged Emo sound that is nothing less than inspiring. Blending grainy, high-pitched vocals with the catchiest of guitar hooks and an aversion to traditional rock song structures, this humble threesome churn out track after track of gut-wrenching emotive romps. Not afraid to soar from melodic acoustic ballads to screeching digressions that verge on Jam Rock, Modest Mouse strike a balance between musical energy and expressive candor – finding an angsty, melancholic purity that eludes other Emo bands.

We can only speculate on the state of Isaac Brock's mind Friday night, but if one of the true poets of your generation publicly sang from "The Lion King" and asked everyone else to hum for his dumb-giggling amusement, you might draw some conclusions that logically end in 12 steps. Modest Mouse played a truly awful set, both career-spanning and career-razing. Sloppy. Awkward. Embarrassing. This wasn't the amusing kind more here
