Indie rock titans Modest Mouse will bring The Lonesome Crowded West Tour to The Wilma in Missoula on Friday, November 18, 2022. The Lonesome Crowded West Tour is an intimate set of dates celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of what has been hailed as one of the greatest indie records of all time.
First released on November 18,1997 on Up Records and produced by Calvin Johnson in Seattle, Modest Mouse plans to tour as they originally had behind the release, going out as a four-piece with original members Isaac Brock and Jeremiah Green joined by Russell Higbee and Simon O’Connor.
Featuring iconic songs like “Cowboy Dan,” “Doin’ The Cockroach” and “Trucker’s Atlas,” nearly every track has been part of Modest Mouse’s ever rotating setlists, but this will be the first time you can hear them in order from start to finish. Pitchfork ranked The Lonesome Crowded West at number 29 in their list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1990s. Spin ranked the album at number 59 in their list of the 100 greatest albums of 1985–2005, and Entertainment Weekly included the album in their list The Indie Rock 25.
Last year, fans got the chance to see Modest Mouse rock the KettleHouse Amphitheater to a nearly sold out crowd. It’s going to be a special experience witnessing Modest Mouse play an intimate show back at The Wilma. We expect this concert to sell out quickly so grab your tickets ASAP!
