Modest Mouse is headed to Taft Theatre this Friday! Modest Mouse formed in 1993 and over the last decade has become the indie rock standard; one of few bands capable of treading the narrow path where massive popularity is possible without sacrificing 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 put on a hell of a show and what better setting that The Taft Theatre?
