When a door closes a window opens. Or something to that effect.
When Langerado 2009 was canceled, many bands decided to cancel their Florida trips. But not all of them.
For example, Modest Mouse decided that Florida in March is still a nice place to visit, so they’re going to make the trip. They’ll play Revolution on Sunday.
It’s been heady times for what has become one of the U.S.’ most popular indie bands. Modest Mouse’s last album, We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, went to the top of the charts, and they had some fortuitous lineup changes — former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr was the most celebrated, but percussionist Joe Plummer’s addition from Black Heart Procession was also a pretty big move.
