To Modest Mouse:

Dear Modest Mouse,

Remember when you came and did a concert at the Mckay Events Center in Orem [Utah] in 2007, and you guys all dressed as sailors and decorated the stage like an old ship in reference to your latest CD release We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank. ?
Remember how not that many people showed up? And after your first or second song you said something along the lines of: "Wow. . . look how popular we are in Utah. . .we can't even fill up a gymnasium. . . . Oh, AND we're playing IN A GYMNASIUM!"

[Prepare for rant of excitement]
Then remember how you played that 10 minute compilation of a bunch of your most awesome songs all put together in one new PHENOMENAL song, and I thought I was going to explode with joy?!?!?! And remember how I 'illegally' jumped over the gates into the GA section so I could be closer to you and jam out to your awesomeness?!?! Remember how when I left I felt like a was floating and I was all buzzy with excitement as your words and your vibes echoed throughout my entire body and that feeling didn't leave me for days?!?!?!?! That concert totally rocked my world!!!

But I digress. . . Now remember last night when you came to Salt Lake and played for our annual Twilight Concert series? And about 40,000 people showed up making it a cluster-f*ck-jam-packed-claustrophobic-catastrophe of a concert containing WAAAAAAY too many douche-bag people, THUS making it so I could barely even hear your music over all the assholes who were talking the whole time cause they weren't really there for the music!??! And how people couldn't just chill the fuck out and STOP walking around and pushing through people and picking fights?!?!?!? *deep breathe*

Well, I hope that showed you guys that you ARE tremendously loved here in Utah. . . and more importantly that you are TOO cool to come play a FREE concert. Though I am SUPER happy that you came and I got to see you [sort of], next time would you please go back to charging money so that only the people who are there for the MUSIC show up?! Oh and please come back SOOOOON.
You guys are radical!!! Keep on rockin and I will keep on enjoyin! :)

MUCH Love,
~One of your very BIGGEST fans~

What a compliment!!! Thank you! It's funny cause so often I feel like no one even reads it and I'm just ranting to myself, until randomly someone (like you) comes forward and says something. I'm glad you enjoy it, cause i really enjoy writing it. Thank you again! :)

I had so much fun!! My buddy Chris is the band manager for Avi Buffalo who was touring with Modest Mouse so he gave me a free backstage pass. I got to meet Modest Mouse and drink with them! :) The crowd was unbelievable!
