Modest Mouse traveled to Colorado once again to put on yet another show at the famous Red Rocks Amphitheater last Tuesday night. Performing at this particular venue definitely has its benefits, it attracts so many different kinds of people, allowing the show to be enjoyable for individuals of all ages, which most definitely reflects their general following as well.

It is clear that many generations take a liking to their music and more than passionately enjoy it live. The ratio of scarf twirling to headbanging was impressive. It is quite easy to find eccentric characters in the crowd and when you do, watching them just adds to the experience and show, overall.

Modest Mouse is not particularly modest…

While Modest Mouse is not particularly modest, nor was there any appearance of a mouse, they still managed to put on an incredibly lively show. Everyone in the crowd kept their energy high even when the wind and cold began to come in, showing that Coloradans sure know how to party rain or shine.

… nor was there any appearance of a mouse…

The band made it obvious they were having a good time which in turn, made the experience even more exciting for everyone. This was not their first time performing at Red Rocks and they made it clear it would not be their last, a combination of the incredible acoustics and jaw-dropping views, Red Rocks is hard to beat. Especially, when such an enthusiastic band favors it.
