This has got to be one of the strangest stadium tours in recent memory. Issaquah’s Modest Mouse have honestly always made plaintive garage rock, even if the gargantuan hooks of 2004 album Good News for People Who Love Bad News propelled them into the national spotlight and they briefly boasted Johnny Marr of the Smiths in their ranks. Likewise, New Jersey’s Brand New couch their emotive post-hardcore in personal strife and bedroom poetics—and noise rock guitar breaks. That these bands managed to perform at Madison Square Garden playing what amount to passion projects is a minor miracle. Good taste ain’t dead. JOSEPH SCHAFER
