Modest Mouse Frontman Opening A Bar

Are you a big Modest Mouse fan?

If that's the case, I'd say a trip to Portland might soon be in order! Why? The band's frontman, Isaac Brock, is opening a bar in the city!

Brock has teamed up with his buddy Matt Brown, who is in the restaurant industry to open up a tavern! The lease has already been signed but the pair haven't come up with a name for it just yet.

“Isaac would really like to call it Glory Hole. I don’t know if we’re going to go for that one. Other names that have been batted around include Missionary Position and Trash Panda. One morning Isaac is going to wake up and text me something genius and that will be the name.”

Hah! Not sure about some of those!

They say that all the decor will come from the mind of Brock, which I can already kinda picture based upon the band's album covers and videos.

“Isaac’s good at creating worlds—whether that’s on an album, the interior of a space or an exterior. He has a god-given talent for landscaping. So Isaac’s role will be to create what this thing looks and feels like; I want it to be one of his worlds. I took the architect and the designer to his warehouse and it blew their minds — it’s weird, ethereal, otherworldly, and a little jokey. The architect said, ‘If we can just have a 20th of the items in the warehouse, we’re set.'”

Very cool!
