Isaac Brock

New York, NY - Modest Mouse will hit the road for a brief run of dates beginning February 22 in Oakland, CA. The dates include a stop in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Palladium and a headlining slot on the Langerado Festival in Miami, FL on Mar. 8. Jim Fairchild of Grandaddy will be playing guitar with Modest Mouse on this tour. Mimicking Birds, the newest signing to Isaac Brock's Glacial Pace label, will be the opener on all dates.
Does that mean Johnny Marr is too busy rehearsing for The Smiths reunion to tour with them this time around? Just kidding. Actually, does Jim playing with them even mean Johnny isn't? I am trying to figure that out. UPDATE: yes it does. Official word:"Jim is filling for Johnny for these dates only. Johnny will be recording with the Cribs at that time."

This announcement, along with Deerhunter and the Gene Ween Band, makes Langerado a little more appealing.

All (not even close to NYC) dates below...

Isn't Johnny Marr playing with The Cribs nowadays? He's such a whore.

Johnny Marr needs to just join Oasis already. He'd be the perfect laid back guitarist in the band. Talk about a Manchester super group.

Liam Gallagher - Original member

Noel Gallagher - Original member

Gem Archer - Former front man of Heavy Stereo

Andy Bell - Former guitarist of Ride and Hurricane #1

Chris Sharrock - Former La's drummer


and maybe one day....

Johnny Marr - Smith's God

That show was so good,but I hope they come back and do a week of shows here like they did right before We Were Dead came out. Such a fun live band.
