Modest Mouse at Governors Ball - 6/24/12
Governors Ball

After playing Orion Fest in Atlantic City on Saturday (6/23), Modest Mouse made their way to Randall's Island on Sunday (6/24) for another NYC-area festival, Governors Ball. As mentioned, Modest Mouse's set at Orion was plagued by a weak sound system and an uninterested crowd, but at Governor's Ball where they fit in better (playing alongside Fiona Apple, Beck, Devendra Banhart and more), both the band and the crowd were way more enthusiastic. The setlist had some of the same songs as their Orion set, like "Shit Luck, "Dramamine," and "Bury Me With It," but overall wasn't too similar and the Governors Ball show got noticeably more of The Moon & Antarctica than Orion did. More pictures and the setlist from Modest Mouse's Governors Ball set are below.

Now that those two festivals are over, Modest Mouse have been added to another NYC area fest, Firefly Music Festival, which goes down in Dover, Delaware from July 20-22 (which isn't much longer a drive from NYC than Atlantic City is). They'll join the previously discussed lineup of Jack White, The Flaming Lips, Passion Pit, The Black Keys, Polica and more. Tickets for that festival are still available. Modest Mouse's only other announced date at the moment is a Columbus, OH show tonight (6/26).

Just my "Shit Luck" I "Missed the Boat". I'll bet "the view" was excellent though? What time did they "Fire it up"

Yeah, the next NYC area show will be in Austin, or Chicago

a festival in delaware is "another NYC area fest"? are you crazy?

Wow, those crowd shots made me really glad I didn't go to this. Actually, any Modest Mouse show post-2003 has probably been full of the same sort of douchebags.

Everyone in the crowd looks like a moron.

1:40 - if you know that many Modest Mouse songs, you win! You are Dork of the Week!

^Hey retard see setlist above! thanks

Goddamn.... We left during "Dramamine" to go get a good spot for Beck (who was great). Now I find out they played "Shit Luck"???? I've seen them a bunch of times and have never heard them play that live! Fuck!

Should have never played this Fest... trying to reach the Metallica crowd?

Anyone that is hanging on to Metallica is probably Lou Reed

i waited their entire set to hear "float on" -- the only song i actually LIKE by them -- and they didn't play it. and then I was stuck in the back for Beck. thanks a lot guys

Maybe Modest Mouse should get together with those immodest mermaids and see what happens. Maybe a Semi-Modest Mouse-Fish-Man hybrid?

uh, johnny marr drove off a cliff three years ago, yeesh so disrespectful!

Posted by Anonymous | June 26, 2012 3:27 PM

Marr left a while ago, that setlist is pretty weak, glad I didn't go - I count 3 songs from Moon and Antarctica, so did they play none at Orion? That setlist is mostly what they had been playing at every show for the past 5-6 years besides the new song, shit luck too

nice cleavage in second to last pic
