Modest Mouse+Brand New
Known in the mainstream for their 2004 YOLO anthem, “Float On,” Modest Mouse has churned out six albums in the last 12 years whose only constants are frontman Isaac Brock's anguished yowl, abundant metaphors for disillusionment, lanky guitar lines, and the occasional sleazy brass hiccup. Joining them onstage is pop punk-cum-emo-cum-straight up indie rock foursome Brand New, whose similarly long career has launched albums ranging in style and gravitas from the kind of music a tween would LiveJournal about, to the kind that makes one ponder universal truths—if they can hear their thoughts over Jesse Lacey's screams.
