MODEST MOUSE moving to McCarren Pool + WIN tix to MUSE

Dad, what the hell?
Nile Marr

Kid 4077 – otherwise known as Nile Marr, the 15-year-old son of Smiths legend Johnny Marr – took to the stage at Bar Amp in Sale for his first live solo performance. Meanwhile his dad’s latest band Modest Mouse – who performed at Manchester’s Ritz earlier this week – were performing in Barcelona.

Modest teenager Nile has said he is influenced more by Modest Mouse than by The Smiths because they were before his time. [Manchester Evening News – June 2, 2007]

I have bad news for those hoping to see Modest Mouse & Clipse on August 8th. Better yet – I have bad news for those who didn’t get tickets to see Beastie Boys at Summerstage because they thought they were seeing Modest Mouse with Band of Horses in Keyspan Park. The August 8th show has been postponed exactly one month, and moved: Modest Mouse is now playing McCarren Pool on September 8th. Love as Laughter are still opening, but Band of Horses and Clipse are up in the air.

Now Band of Horses‘ only upcoming NYC date is the Hiro Ballroom thing (where Ryan Adams played last night).

Muse is still playing MSG on August 6th. Want to win a pair of tickets? E-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: MUSE), and tell me if I should finish posting Andrew’s Bonnaroo coverage now that Bonnaroo was so long ago. One winner will be picked at ramdom, and contacted, on Monday July 2nd, 2007. Your email will not be shared with anyone.
