Modest Mouse live NJ

Portland's Modest Mouse stopped by Montclair's Wellmont Theatre last Thursday, July 22nd. The Washington state band's performance featured a 19 song set, which can be found below. This show fortunately took place unlike the groups Brooklyn show the next night, which was canceled due to lighting. Videos of "3rd Planet", "Dramamine", "The Whale Song" and my personal favorite "The Good Times Are Killing Me" can be found below. Portland band The Morning Teleportation opened up the show. Be sure to check them out at MS.

one of the few good bands the Wellmont has ever gotten. If I had a little more cash I probably would have went.

Hey Chunks - Turn that frown upside down. Show was great. Go play in traffic if life is that bad!

I'm with Chunks. That was my ninth time seeing Modest Mouse, and it was definitely their worst outing yet. The sound was partly to blame, but also the spirit was just lacking...

sound at the venue sucked. opening band was not bad, but kinda dragged their set out. and the set change took forever considering the drums were already set up. And lets not even talk about how hot it was in there. I enjoyed Modest Mouse though. Highlights for me were Whale Song, Dramamine, and King Rat. Sucks about the brooklyn show, but it has been rescheduled for Sept 14th and I will certainly be there
