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.
