Indie pop stars pile the stage with instruments and serenade fans
Way back in 2003, Modest Mouse released their explosively popular fourth album, "Good News for People Who Love Bad News" with the song that anyone could recognize in 0.5 seconds "Float On." After such a long absence from a Top 40 status, one would expect relegation back to the small rock clubs for the band, but a relatively decent showing of fans at the 1stBank Center on Saturday proved otherwise.
Devoted fans wearing an insanely diverse amount of different Modest Mouse t-shirts arrived early to guarantee a good spot on the floor for the show. A few decided to tailgate in the lonely fields and parking lots of Broomfield, all more than excited to see Modest Mouse still hitting the road. The band Radar Bros. opened the set to lay down a good indie music vibe for fans. Then after a fairly long intermission, Modest Mouse took the stage. The band had a wide variety of instruments on hand, including cellos and violins, as well as a variety of keyed instruments. Lead singer Isaac Brock made sure to bring the passion along with his unique, and much appreciated vocals. The band layed down a solid set for fans that seem to be in for the long run.
