Modest Mouse confirmed for Governors Ball Music Festival

The Governors Ball Music Festival announced their lineup this morning, and the hints they'd been dropping turned out to be true. Modest Mouse will be one of the acts performing on June 24, opening for Beck.

Other acts that day apart from Beck, include: Explosions In The Sky, Cults, and Built To Spill.

Because this festival has the band locked for the Sunday, this means that Modest Mouse will most likely be only performing on Saturday June 23 at the Orion Music + More festival in Atlantic City.

Tickets for this event go on sale tomorrow, February 22, through the festival's website. Watch a video of the announcement below.

Isaac performs at

Here's something that completely flew under our radar.

It was brought to our attention yesterday, that Isaac performed solo this past Thursday evening at a benefit in Portland, OR entitled "Songs For Joel". The purpose of which was to raise money for Joel Burrows who was seriously injured last year and required funds for a special wheelchair.

The show also included Spoon's Britt Daniel and ex Sleater-Kinney members Corin Tucker and Janet Weiss.

Isaac's five song set included four Modest Mouse songs and a cover of Love As Laughter's "Miss Direction". For the complete set, check out the tour date archive.

Thanks to NovocainHurricane for bringing the show to our attention, and JB for the complete set list.

The Governors Ball Music Festival?

The Governors Ball Music Festival is taking place on June 23 and 24 at Randall's Island in New York, NY. This is the same weekend that Modest Mouse is confirmed to be performing at Metallica's Orion Music + More festival in nearby Atlantic City.

The Governors Ball will be announcing its full lineup on February 21. Until then, they have started dropping hints on their Facebook page. Including one today of a cartoon mouse being modest, making it look very likely that Modest Mouse will be performing at that festival as well.

Tickets have yet to go on sale, and remember that if they do before the 21st, this is not confirmed. Keep an eye on The Governors Ball Music Festival's website for more info.

If this turns out to be true, it definitely looks like Modest Mouse will only be performing on one day at the Orion Music + More festival. So be careful when buying tickets there, if you weren't planning on going for the whole weekend.

Thanks go to Miike S for bringing this to our attention.
