Modest Mouse, Live In Concert: Sasquatch 2011

May 30, 2011 The Pacific Northwest stalwarts' headlining slot at the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival found Isaac Brock and company pulling songs from throughout their career for a focused, electrifying set.

As one of the Pacific Northwest's most esteemed rock bands for the past 18 years, Modest Mouse was a perfect fit for the headlining slot on the third night of the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival in central Washington state. Although their set did feature two new songs, "Lampshades on Fire" and "Poison," the band drew heavily from its first three albums. Earlier songs like "Cowboy Dan" have an undercurrent of fear and isolation on record, but the band performed them with a considerably more aggressive tone, bristling with energy. Despite some time off the road between album releases, Modest Mouse sounded tight and focused from the main stage at the Gorge Amphitheatre.

  • "Sh— Luck"
  • "Gravity Rides Everything"
  • "Dashboard"
