Modest Mouse can be a little bit hit and miss in their live shows, and this one was no different. Some of the time the band seemed to be into what they were doing and played well, other times they seemed disengaged or bored.
I wish I could say something about how The Shins played that night, but unfortunately I didn’t get there in time to see them. That was intentional because I didn’t know The Shins yet and therefore didn’t know I’d like them. Oh well.
