Modest Mouse (w/ Jim Fairchild) to tour w/ Mimicking Birds

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.
