Pacific Northwest stalwarts Modest Mouse have been around the block a few times. From humble beginnings in Seattle’s DIY scene in the early 90s, to exceeding critical expectations with their 2000 major-label debut The Moon & Antarctica, and the Grammy noms and Platinum plaques of their commercial peak (2004’s Good News for People Who Love Bad News), the band has weathered shifting popular tastes and myriad lineup changes to remain one of rock’s most enduring voices. They’re returning to SummerStage to perform their latest LP, last summer’s The Golden Casket. They’re supported by the Cribs, a British indie-rock trio connected to Modest Mouse by the famous guitarist that has played in each band—the Smiths’ Johnny Marr.
