Modern Baseball Announce First Headlining Shows Since Mental Health Hiatus

The future of Philadelphia emo heroes Modern Baseball seemed in doubt when they canceled their remaining tour dates last February, less than a month after co-frontman Brendan Lukens announced he would be taking a break from live performance to focus on his mental health. But the band is backing up Daniel Johnston at one of his farewell shows in October, and now they’ve announced they’ll play a trio of hometown headlining gigs the following week at Union Transfer. It’s a Friday the 13th weekend during Halloween month; thus, the shows appear to be spooky seasonal celebrations. But Lukens says that they’ll be the “last MoBo shows for the forseeable future,” so it looks like it’ll be the last spooky celebrations for a while. Check out ticket info below.
