my friend went to the second modest mouse show and said the set was rather quick for the money.

15 minute ovation?


that didn't happen. it was just b/c they didn't come back out too quick for the encore - people weren't going nuts or anything though - nor should they have been - modest mouse was pretty boring.

If you believe a certain other music website Beirut's playing two shows in Sept - one at the Wordless Series on Sept 24th and, perhaps more excitingly, one at the open air Delacorte Theatre in Central Park on Sept 26th - which could be pretty special.

Anyone got any word on tickets?
