concert { Modest Mouse

1 word review: fuckingawesome

When: 4/20 (heheh...yeah there were a lot of references)
Where: Orpheum (not the best place for a concert, the acoustics are funky, but I like the seats

Grand Archives - classic Seattle alternative sound
Love as Laughter - reminiscent of Jimi Hendrix, but white
Modest Mouse - fricking awesomeness. They played for a looong time and had a looong encore. They managed to transmit their energy to the audience. The dual-drummers were a thing to see, I was entranced. The lead singer/guitarist at one point in the performance jumped off stage and played and sang in the audience. He also sang /through/ his guitar. I would see them again in a heartbeat. They played songs from all their albums and mixed it up quite a lot, it felt like they played the ones they liked the best and also played a few the audience demanded.

I bought a T-shirt.

This one would be worth it.

They are playing on the 20th and 21st, so if you and Mrs. Evil Bobby wanted to go, tickets for tonight are still available via Ticketmaster I believe.
