February 1, 2016 on Watch Carly Rae Jepsen Sing Grease: Live! Original “All I Need Is An Angel”
I saw Vince & CRJ (twice) like a week apart last year. Vince is great live, but he's still growing. I'd go with CRJ -- her show is fantastic, totally lives up to the album. I'm sure the new tour will be even more polished.

Yeah, once Ross left everything took a nosedive. I am a firm supporter of PATD's first two albums (first one's a little cringey, sure, but it's fun), but can't fuck with any of the later stuff. Dude's still really young (29! according to Wiki). I wouldn't be surprised if he resurfaced in a few years doing something totally different.

They've always been intertwined in my mind -- both broke through around the same time, and were seemingly influenced by each other as they were coming up. (Jesse Lacey covered them a bunch when he was doing solo shows.) They were also not-really-emo bands that were embraced by the emo scene (though MM's reach was more varied and wide-reaching). The few shows they headlined together a couple of years back, I think, solidified their similar fanbases/approaches to music. Though, admittedly, I'm a much bigger BN fan than I am of Modest Mouse, so maybe their connection is a little one-sided...
