Pixies and Modest Mouse to Coheadline KettleHouse Amphitheater in 2023 with Cat Power
Acclaimed rock bands Pixies and Modest Mouse are teaming up for a coheadlining concert at KettleHouse Amphitheater on September 7, 2023 with support from Cat Power.
Pixies and Modest Mouse are each known for their distinctive and influential styles of rock music. Pixies, who formed in Boston in 1986, are credited with helping the rise of alternative rock in the 1990s. In fact, Modest Mouse, who formed in 1993, has stated on several occasions that the Pixies had a big influence on them.
Both bands have platinum-selling albums and an array of classic hits like “Where Is My Mind,” “Here Comes Your Man,” “Float On” and “Dashboard” to name a few. Both bands have also played sold-out shows at the Amp: Pixies in 2018 and Modest Mouse in 2021.
It’s rare to see two such influential and innovative bands sharing a bill, and the addition of veteran singer-songwriter Cat Power only makes the show more exciting. With that said, we strongly advise getting your tickets ASAP!

Pixies have been acclaimed as the most influential, pioneering band of the late 80s alt/rock movement, having served as a major influence for artists like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, the Strokes, Weezer, and many more. And today, a whole new generation of music fans has been discovering and embracing the band’s “loudquietloud” signature sound. Quirky, catchy melodies have always been Pixies’ calling card; seven genre-defining studio albums, including the Gold-certified Surfer Rosa, and the iconic Platinum Doolittle, considered one of the all-time, quintessential alt/rock albums. Sell-out crowds all over the globe, Pixies’ live shows are unadulterated magic, simultaneously electrifying and lo-fi. Seventy-five minutes of the band playing anything they want, in whatever order they want, the classics and the new gems. And no two Pixies shows are ever the same.
After disbanding in 1993, Pixies launched their reunion tour in April 2004, playing to sell-out crowds across the globe for 15 years, a far longer period of time than they were a band originally. But writing, recording, and releasing new music was something that the band had been wanting to do for a long time, so they secretly booked studio time in Wales for the fall of 2012. Six days into the recording, founding bassist Kim Deal decided to leave the band; Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering made the decision to carry on, finishing and releasing the band’s first studio album in more than two decades, 2014’s Indie Cindy.

About Modest Mouse
Having recently completed a sold out 25th anniversary tour for their breakthrough album, 1997’s The Lonesome Crowded West, Modest Mouse continues to prove themselves to be one of the most consistent live acts today. Modest Mouse released their highly anticipated new album, The Golden Casket, on June 25, 2021 via Epic Records. The Golden Casket heralds another new chapter in the GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi platinum band’s unpredictable evolution.
Produced with Dave Sardy and Jacknife Lee in Los Angeles and in Modest Mouse’s studio in Portland, the album hovers in the liminal space between raw punk power and experimental studio science, frontman Isaac Brock explores themes ranging from the degradation of our psychic landscapes and invisible technology, to fatherhood. The twelve tracks behave like amorphous organisms, undergoing dramatic mutations and mood swings that speak to the chronic tug-of-war between hope and despair that plays out in Brock’s head.
