Modest Mouse – Truckers Atlas @ The Hoedown Center Richland 1997 (cops shut down show!!)

Modest Mouse

This is a short segment of the infamous video of Modest Mouse playing Truckers Atlas at the Hoedown Center in Richland WA in the summer of 1997. About 3 or 4 songs into their set the Richland Police showed up and took over the stage. Funkytonk Records has the entire set in HD format in the archives. After the cops shut down the show Isaac Brock tried to make arrangements to play a house show somewhere else, but Eric locked his keys in their van and the same police who just shut down the concert had to help Modest Mouse get into their van. A young heavily bearded Tim Leingang can be seen at the end of the footage snapping “in your face” photos of the police.
