Modest Mouse - Sasquatch! Festival, 29 May 2011
I've been putting up lots of shows for bands who are touring Australia soon, but here's one just because it's great. This was only a few months before Modest Mouse's last Australian tour, but unlike that one, which was strange and awkward, this show is really great, even if Isaac Brock's comments are as weird as ever.
The set itself is quite long and varied and the sound quality is outstanding. There is a very long break before the encore, where it sounds as if it isn't clear if they'll be allowed to return, but eventually play three more.
It's been a long time since these guys have released an album, but hopefully one isn't far away and we see them return for a show of this kind of quality.
