Modest Mouse @ The Gothic, Englewood, CO 2000-09-10

"We're Fugazi from Washington DC and we wrote a song about it" are the first words out of Issac Brock's mouth before the break into "Trailer Trash".  Not sure what that is all about but I guess I can hear some Fugazi influence in Modest Mouse's music.

I didn't record this show but my friend Chapper did the work on this one.  If I recall correctly the show was sold out but somehow he made it in and managed to get this great audio image of the nights performance.

I think is is my favorite era of Modest Mouse.  Pretty much all my favorite songs get played.  I like the new car commercial era songs too but these ones just speak to me on a different level.

Might be an improv or it might be a different song.




  1. So stoked to hear this. Any chance your buddy taped 764-HERO's set too? I'd love to hear that as well.

  2. Sorry White he didn't happen to record 764's set

  3. I am really excited to hear this thanks for posting it. I like all of Modest Mouse's recorded output, including the newer stuff, but I would have loved to see them before they exploded with popularity. The tracklist looks great, a lot of my favorites.

  4. Hey SxPxDxCx, thanks for the reply. I figured it was a long shot, but I wanted to ask anyways. Love your blog.

  5. Could you reupload this please?

    1. Just updated the links. Thanks for the comment.
