On Saturday, Sept. 2, generations of alternative rock unite when the Pixies and Modest Mouse with special guest Cat Power take the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater stage in Vail. Everyone in the 2,500-seat venue will surely be singing along to hits “Where Is My Mind,” “Float On” and more. 

The Pixies, out of Boston, started in 1986 and are associated with the 1990s alternative rock boom with songs in over 100 TV shows, movies and video games – including “Where Is My Mind,” which was featured in the end credits of “Fight Club” (1999). Modest Mouse, formed in 1993 and based in Portland, were strongly influenced by the Pixies and have over 100 million views on their “Float On” music video. Cat Power, aka Charlyn Marie “Chan” Marshall, is a singer-songwriter, occasional actress and former spokesperson/model for Chanel who started making music in the mid-’90s and had her music featured prominently in the 2007 film “Juno.”

Their music has been featured in “The Simpsons,” “Daddy’s Home,” “The O.C.,” and many more pop culture films and TV shows.

Modest Mouse, meanwhile, has had their music featured in commercials and TV shows including “Scrubs,” “One Tree Hill” and “Gilmore Girls.” With seven studio albums, six Eps and 20-plus singles, Modest Mouse has a deep playlist of songs to choose from at each live performance.

Cat Power is a musician raised in the South who hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 with her record “Sun” in 2012 – her first top-10 album in the U.S.
