Modest Mouse at Coachella 2013:
I’m sure it was a badass set but the great rock moment came hours before he was onstage.
WEEKS before Isaac had been trying to make new friends with people drinking in the wee hours at a park. It did not fair well. They smashed up his face –beat his jaw off it’s hinge.
He had to have his mouth wired shut.
So… a few hours before the band is set to play at Coachella Isaac is done having his jaw wired shut. I guess it makes it hard to sing.. He removes it himself with nothing other than leatherman pliers + whiskey.
LIKE A BADASS.
He doesn’t recommend it though– to the surprise of no one he needed a lot of dental work after that..
