with Gene Ween
Celebrating their long-awaited album Strangers To Ourselves, Celebrate Brooklyn! '02 alums Modest Mouse will once again flood the Bandshell with their distinctive indie rock.
Beginning in the Northwest in the mid-90s, the band rode the new wave of indie rock into the early oughts and crested with their commercial Grammy-nominated hit "Float On" in 2004. Their next few releases and the rise of the Internet in music promotion, continued to earn them a loyal school of followers, including an active fan message board that was also rumored to have made a few love connections. (Okay, it's not a rumor. I know two friends that met on the board, fell in love and are now married!)
But enough about L-O-V-E. Modest Mouse is back on the scene after eight years and you can expect the same dark-yet-danceable tunes you grew to love (there's that word again!) in your early years. So don your hoodies and lace up your all-stars and join us for an unforgettable night #AtTheBandshell.
The BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival is one of New York City's longest running, free, outdoor performing arts festivals and is held every summer at the Prospect Park Bandshell.
Doors open one hour prior to performance unless otherwise noted.
