I have trouble choosing my second favorite of theirs. It's only gotten more difficult with the full release of the leaked demos. Good Man, 1996, Nobody Moves and Fork & Knife are among their best...

While Mix Tape, 70x7 and Soco have been the YFW songs they've played the most over the last year or so, Jude Law, Logan, Shower Scene and No Seatbelt are the only other YFW songs that have popped up...

Not sure why they don't incorporate Logan more often. I'd much rather see it than Mix Tape, 70x7 or any other YFW song at this point. It has remained my favorite from that album since I first started...

You Stole used to be my least favorite song to see live (pre-2011). That was until Jesse and Vin started tweaking with the vocals to fit better in a live setting.

If any songs suck the energy out,...

Here, I attended that show and forgot all about it.

The Meadow Brook Music Festival is another semi-large amphitheater (7,700 cap) they played last year, too, which is comparable to some of these...

Yeah, this tour features some of the biggest venues the band has played, outside of festivals. If I'm not mistaken, only their Wembley Arena and Nassau Coliseum headlining shows rival the size of the...

I really enjoyed Amy's book. I found a lot of the stories she shared to be funny, but I can see where some might consider it cynical. The cynicism was more than likely a result of when she was...

I second LCW and TMAA. I'd also suggest checking out Good News for People Who Love Bad News and Building Nothing Out of Something. Good News songs continue to make up a large portion of their live...

Pretty sure the vast majority of "fans" of most bands are casual at best, sadly enough.

It looks like there are still tickets for MSG if anyone was still wanting tickets for it. Looks like GA is sold out, but I was able to locate tickets in the 100 and 200 sections. Chicago still has...

To those that are/were wondering where that image came from, it's from an email. Here's a link to the source:

I would be, too. They've done so much to distance themselves from TBS and similar bands. It'd be dumb to have TBS open for them.

That's what was so nice about the Forest Hills show. All of the...

Pitchfork made it sound like they received a press release for the tour announcement. Could it have anything to do with that?

Reading some of the comments on r/ModestMouse, I find it interesting that some of their fans still consider Brand New to be pop-punk and are turned off by the screaming. There seems to be some...

Getting to see Cursive open for them must've been incredible. Still kicking myself for not going to one of those shows.

Haha except for Canada, apparently. That works out best for you, anyway.

Yeah, they're one of the few bands that continues to get bigger despite next to no output and very little communication. The venues they played (and sold out) during their last US run were the...

The amphitheater isn't bad. I saw Blink there in '04 from seats and then the pit, and had a great time. If you got pit tickets, it isn't very large, so you don't have to worry about getting trampled...

Haha no worries. I get where you're coming from. And, I agree. The lawn most certainly won't sell out. Especially, when some people from the area will probably go to Red Rocks instead for the...

Both bands are in my top 5, but I wouldn't travel to Red Rocks if it weren't for Brand New playing. While seeing Modest Mouse there would be dope, the fact that Brand New has an opportunity to play a...

Oh yeah, I know how much bigger it is, but I thought surely the presale would sell out. Or, at the very least the pit tickets would be gone. It isn't a very large pit area, and they only have a...

For how quickly the last KC show sold out, there still seem to be plenty of tickets for it this time. Perhaps people gave up on the cluster fuck of a presale. I'm strongly considering going to it...

I'd give the nod to The Moon & Antarctica, but what do I know? I'm just happy they're playing together again.
