Modest Mouse & Brand New

This was a little more of a sentimental show for me because I went through phases with both Modest Mouse & Brand New when I was in high school - but never made it to see either of them live during that time. I was excited to get the opportunity to photograph both bands all these years later. Modest opened with their full eight-piece ensemble, and almost every instrument under the sun including multiple guitars, stand-up & electric bass, banjo, keys, xylophone, trumpet, tuba, wood block and two drum sets. Slideshow for Miami New Times.
