While the band has maintained a steady touring schedule, it has been less prolific with releasing new music since issuing We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank in 2007. Earlier this year, Modest Mouse finally put out Strangers to Ourselves to wide acclaim. Other Main Stage performers include fellow indie favorites Of Monsters And Men, dance rockers Panic! At The Disco, Long Beach-based band Cold War Kids (featuring former Modest Mouse guitarist Dann Gallucci) and Australian group Atlas Genius.
On the Festival Stage, Live 105 welcomes the schizoid piano pop of Twenty One Pilots, hard rocking bass-and-drums duo Death From Above 1979 and ne of Southern California's brightest indie rock groups in Best Coast. With Bethany Cosentino's brightly colored go-go dress, thigh high boots and occasional beehive hairdo going along with the swaying rhythms of her bandmate Bobb Bruno's songs, Best Coast mixes '60s surf rock and girl group sounds to create an addictive audio confection. The band will play songs from its forthcoming third album California Nights. The Kooks, Southern rapper YelaWolf, MisterWives, Sheppard, The Orwells, SF indie-tronic act Cathedrals, Meg Myers, local group WATERS and In The Valley Below round out the Festival Stage schedule.
