Modest Mouse - “Jesus Christ Was an Only Child” (Live 1997)
Today we’re introducing a Throwback Thursdays, and what better way to do that than with local heroes Modest Mouse. True to their Seattle roots, the band has performed at Bumbershoot five times including their most recent set in 2009. This clip is from their very first Bumbershoot performance 15 years ago.
In 1982 Hall & Oates topped the charts with “Maneater”, check out The Wooden Birds put their indie spin on “Maneater” and then see Hall & Oates perform the original at Bumbershoot 2011.
Hall & Oates aren’t the only Bumbershoot artists inspiring covers! Get your peepers on Broken Social Scene reworking Modest Mouse’s “The World at Large”. Modest Mouse has made several Bumbershoot appearances the first of which was in 1998. Broken Social Scene will be carrying the indie rock torch when they take the stage this year at Bumbershoot 2011!
