Modest Mouse 9-26-2001 @ Criminal Records

Fishermen often tell tales (truthful or otherwise) of "the one that got away." Today, and along the same lines, I'm sharing a show I just couldn't make. I remember being highly perturbed at the time, but I was in my first month of grad school and working harder than I ever had before. It was a grueling time and music had to stay on the back burner for a while. As a result, I wound up missing both an in-store and a full show by Modest Mouse on September 26, 2001, here in Atlanta. Dammit.

The "in-store" was actually in the parking lot of Criminal Records, where Modest Mouse played an acoustic set in the early evening before their show at the Variety Playhouse. Recently I was fortunate enough to come across a recording of that set. Now you too can listen to what was going on a few miles from my apartment while I was home reading piles of literature on research methodology, philosophy of science, and judicial politics.

Since no one is commenting, I'll go ahead and plug All the Saints. Highly suggested!

And I'll urge people to go see Ghostfinger.

GO SEE GHOSTFINGER AT STAR BAR ON WEDNESDAY! They're from Nashville, and they're badass. And I hear the live show is killer.

I was at both of the shows & the mini-set too! I wish I could find a picture of the ridiculous wig they were all passing around. Very Blonde. Very much a mullet. Priceless!
