Modest Mouse Tickets
Stage AE in Pittsburgh
Lo-fi post indie rockers, Modest Mouse are coming to Stage AE on Monday 20th April 2015!
Their jagged and often melodic songs slowly bubbled from cult sensations to unlikely alterna-pop stars! One of the most surprising commercial success stories of the new millennium, the band broke through to the mainstream audience with the platinum-selling 'Good News for People Who Love Bad News', and they became genuine rock stars at a time when their musical peers remained cult figures! After much anticipation Modest Mouse are back on their 'Of Course We Know' tour, come and rock out, MM never disappoint!
Modest Mouse were one of the most unique bands of the 1990s and 2000s, as well as one of more unlikely commercial success stories in rock history!
Modest Mouse played a key part in turning the Pacific Northwest into fertile ground for indie acts (including Death Cab for Cutie and the Shins) and More than a decade after the arty Pacific Northwest indie-rock band formed, its sixth album, Good News for People Who Love Bad News, sold more than a million copies, thanks in part to its Number One Modern Rock single "Float On." The band's 2007 follow-up, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, topped the album chart.
Issac Brock (b. July 9, 1975, Issaquah, Washington), the band's singer, songwriter and guitarist, grew up poor in suburban Washington, moving from relative to relative before quitting school at sixteen. Inspired by the rock scene in his home state that spawned Nirvana and Screaming Trees, he formed Modest Mouse in the early Nineties!
