Just curious? Can modest mouse sell out the MHW on virtually no prior notice and with doors at 1 am?

I remember when Mickey Mouse was the star of the Mickey Mouse Club. Me and Johnny used to sit around our small black and white TV in our Williamsburg apartment eating peanut butter and a loaf of bread that cost us a nickel.

Were Vivian Girls there?

Posted by i heart v | June 20, 2008 1:45 PM

Can we kill the Vivian Girls thing now? I know Daft Punk, sir, and they are no Daft Punk.

Fire It Up.

You forgot Tiny Cities Made Of Ashes. which was probably the highlight!! Issac did some cool vocal shit through out the show.

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 2:02 PM

agreed on tiny cities - loved how they got all jam band on us

The free flow of information is a good thing vegan.

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 2:08 PM

that looks almost identical to their set at MSG....minus tiny cities.

Oh My God was this a ridiculously great show. I mean top to bottom it was pure beauty. I fell in love with this band again after last night

Right in front of Johnny Marr the whole time was simply something magical. Johnny FUCKING Marr people.

And of course when Issac jumoed into the audience right next to me the crowd went nuts.

Who gives a shit that they did not play Float On. Some of you are just idiots.

Outside the show was insanity. So many people trying to scalp a ticket. Guys were walking down the line offering 200-300 for a ticket. I saw Eugene Mirman outside trying to get in

Very special show. Thanks Modest Mouse and Bowery Presents.

The fact that they didnt play Float On was great. that song would sound really hokey it 3 in the morning.

can't you please shut the fuck up and go back to coloring in your book.

Not just sold out, but there were dozens of people trying to scalp at the doors. Helluva rally. I are foreal tired-like.

Posted by Tito | June 20, 2008 2:29 PM

wish i were there! (sigh.)

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 2:29 PM

really? there were scalpers? outside? shocking... one would have never guessed such a thing exists reading this here blog today...ahem conor.

Personal secret of roofiemaster69 (as performed last night after the concert on N 6th): Time your date rape punani raiding (fucking) just right so that rigor mortis sets in simultaneously, and the punani will constrict so that the (somewhat minuscule) Trouser Snake will finally feel of appropriate size for the dead victim lady’s carnal cavity (Note however that this is difficult to accomplish within the 2 second time span of TS excitement).

Posted by roofiemaster69 | June 20, 2008 2:37 PM

Can someone honestly -- without being sarcastic -- explain what you like about this band? I just don't get the appeal. Truly.

Posted by Confused | June 20, 2008 2:40 PM

it was a great show. isaac was quite charming (and drunk wouldn"t you say?) introducing wild pack of family dogs. no need for them to play float on, though ocean breathes softly would have been a nice highlight, not that i'm complaining... except about being tired.

i woke up a few minutes ago
the shit was sick

youre a fucktard

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 2:54 PM

isaac is often drunk and a snarky fuck. great band though. at least they used to be in the good ol' days when we walked uphill to school both ways in the snow while i at the peanut butter i stole from that punk whose ass i kicked and sent back to nj. and to roofie, go home. we don't like you here.

Still feeling GREAT after that show. Do we have enough napkins?

Posted by cocaine cowboy | June 20, 2008 3:00 PM

sounds very similar to the set the played opening for REM in Philly.

"Pulled off stage around 4:00am" Thank God no one in Williamsburg has a job they had to be at.

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 3:11 PM

yeah thank god you are at an office job and i don't have to see you
ever

Posted by vampire | June 20, 2008 3:12 PM

I couldn't go. I have a job.

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 3:22 PM

I just walked by and there are still 200 people in line. Waiting to get in.

There set hasn't changed much at all during the tour, though I'd like to see Dramamine...

Posted by Anonymous | June 20, 2008 3:40 PM

Almost the same songs as in Toronto two weeks ago. I thought that it was pretty weak set, and they're my favourite band. Highlights were Here it Comes, Paper Thin Walls and Satin in a Coffin.

Where are songs like Teeth Like God's Shoeshine, Trailer Trash, Third Planet, and yeah... Dramamine.
