Indie rockers Modest Mouse brought their 2018 tour to a sold-out crowd at Milwaukee’s historic Eagles Ballroom Saturday night. Returning to Wisconsin after a memorable performance at Madison’s Breese Stevens Field last fall, the Issac Brock-Led band put on a 2+ hour performance that the city won’t forget.

While the Washington natives haven’t released an album since 2015’s Strangers to Ourselves, Modest Mouse can still fill venues across the country, due to their loyal fan base and impressive catalog of projects.

With a unique set-list for every performance and Brock’s entertaining banter between tracks, what better way could Milwaukee spend their Cinco de Mayo?

Last night brought no surprises in the best way possible. Modest Mouse kept fans engaged while they performed a random assortment of singles and B-sides, ranging from their 1996 debut, This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing to Think About to their newest LP and their critically acclaimed Good News for People Who Love Bad News.

The night’s good news for people who love bad good news? Modest Mouse delivered!

The set even included two encores, after fans spend nearly a half hour cheering for Modest Mouse to return to the stage. Their persistence was rewarded as the band’s second encore brought the band’s biggest hit to date, ‘Float On’, a track which the band often leaves off its setlist.

Modest Mouse Brings a Memorable Night of Indie Rock to Madison’s Breese Stevens Field

Modest Mouse brought their indie rock sounds from the Pacific Northwest to the Midwest, as the Isaac Brock-led group brought their 2017 Fall Tour to the Breese Stevens Field in Michigan Madison. From Washington state to Washington Ave., Modest Mouse played a catalog of their biggest hits, B-sides and fan favorites for the Wisconsin crowd, all while delivering a memorable night of live music.

From the very beginning the crowd was engaged as Modest Mouse performed a collection of songs from across their discography. Despite being over two years removed from their last LP, Strangers to Ourselves, and over a decade past the release of their mega-successful single, ‘Float On’, Modest Mouse hasn’t lost a step when it comes to owning the stage, which is to no fan’s surprise.

While Madison’s Breese Stevens Field saw summer concerts this season from artists like Ryan Adams and Wilco, Modest Mouse closed out the outdoor venue’s year on a high note. Performing a different setlist last night than the tour’s previous dates, Modest’s potpourri setlist reached from their newest album to their 1996 debut. Although you can’t always bet on Modest Mouse to perform some of their biggest singles, like ‘Float On’ and ‘Dashboard’, Saturday’s setlist included both and its diversity helped make the show so great.

The entire night was near perfect, despite Issac Brock thinking that he was in Michigan, until his band corrected him. Embarrassed, Brock turned the error into a joke, later acting like he was in Florida, Washington and more. Modest Mouse made up for the error and then some, in part by playing ‘Float On’.

And to put the cherry on top, Modest Mouse ended their performance with a 30-minute encore, adding to the Wisconsin Badger’s football win by giving Madison another reason to celebrate on the chilly Saturday night.

Throwback Thursday Review: The Moon & Antarctica | Modest Mouse

BY DOMINIC BARICEVIC ★★★★★

“The universe is shaped exactly like the earth/ If you keep on going straight, you’ll end up where you were.” This quote from opening song ‘3rd Planet’ sums up the theme of The Moon and Antarctica; the world is going to end soon. In this song, people are quitting their day to day jobs, packing up their belongings, and preparing to head out to a “3rd planet”. This 3rd planet could be a heaven or purgatory of sorts. Perhaps it is a void of nothingness known as death. Whatever it is though, it’s coming, and people are anticipating it greatly.
