Modest Mouse

Hometown: Issaquah, WA

Modest Mouse was formed in 1993 in Issaquah, Washington and over the last decade has become the indie rock standard, and one of the few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing their longtime fans.

The band released their first full-length album, This Is A Long Drive For Someone With Nothing To Think About, on the Up label in 1996. With the release of their second album, The Lonesome Crowded West in 1997, the band’s status reached new heights with a legion of fans and critical acclaim. In 2000, Modest Mouse was signed to Epic Records and released their third album, The Moon & Antarctica. In 2004 came the release of their breakthrough album, Good News For People Who Love Bad News, which included the hit “Float On” and has sold over 1.5 million copies and earned the band two Grammy nominations.

Modest Mouse released We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank, on March 20, 2007 and immediately entered the Billboard Top 200 chart at #1.  Most recently the band released the EP No One’s First, And You’re Next and also reissued Moon & Antartica on vinyl.

    Who: Modest Mouse on the main stage In 3 or Fewer Words: Lonesome Crowded Mess Memorable Because: Modest Mouse broke my heart. 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
