Modest Mouse to tour sans-Johnny Marr

Johnny Marr is not going to be joining Modest Mouse when the band goes on their recently announced tour this spring, opting instead to work with the Cribs on their new album. Former Grandaddy guitarist Jim Fairchild will fill in for Marr, who presumably hasn't quit Modest Mouse, but has other commitments (but seriously, the Cribs???).


Here are Modest Mouse's tour dates:


02.22 Oakland, CA: Fox Theater
02.23 Visalia, CA: Fox Theatre
02.24 Hollywood, CA: Hollywood Palladium
02.25 Tempe, AZ: Marquee
02.26 Albuquerque, NM: Albuquerque Convention Center
02.28 Boulder, CO: Balch Fieldhouse

I think the Cribs are alright. Sucks he won't be touring with MM though. I thought the highlight when I saw them last year was seeing him play with them last year.

Got tickets to the Palladium show today. Should be interesting to see what Fairchild brings to the mix. Wonder if the band will premiere any new material.

Fairchild rocks! They just put on the best MM show I have seen in years!
