Modest Mouse released their seventh album and first in over six years, The Golden Casket, in June, and they began their tour supporting it with a set at Lollapalooza earlier this month. On Wednesday (8/11), that tour stopped in NYC for the first of four shows at Brooklyn Steel, which was also the venue's first in-person show since COVID shutdown. If you didn't make it out to any of them in person, you still may have caught the third night, Friday, August 13, when it streamed live on Bowery Presents' Twitch.

We caught the second night, on Thursday, August 12, and the band were in fine form as ever, running through a setlist that was heavy in material from The Golden Casket but included plenty of older favorites from their deep catalog, as well. All four nights had nicely varied setlists and you can see them, along with pictures from Thursday (including openers The Districts) and videos from all four shows, below.
