From the listings desk: We erroneously printed in today's paper that Mount Righteous was playing the Modbo next week. It's actually just Joey Kendall.

The Modbo is excited to host the return of members of the acclaimed anti-orchestra Mount Righteous with local indie favorites Constellation of Cars. This show takes place on Wednesday, October 12th, at 8 pm, $5-7 suggested donation.
With their nationally known anti-orchestra Mount Righteous on a short hiatus, record company Flight Music Group (FMG) has taken this opportunity to shine some light on the talent of front-man Joey Kendall. FMG currently has Joey in the studio for his first conventional solo release. Kendall’s “Was Here,” a retrospective compilation of lo-fi demos, live recordings, and a few studio tracks with Grammy nominated producer John Congleton (Mountain Goats, David Byrne, St. Vincent, Modest Mouse, Mount Righteous), was released to rave reviews. With accompaniment from his wife Kendall Kendall (yes, Kendall Kendall), Joey is touring the West side of the U.S. this October.
Constellation of Cars is comprised of Andy Tanner (Laymen Terms, Headhum) and Kellie Palmblad (Eyes Caught Fire). They formed in October 2009 to find a nice medium to each other’s songwriting styles, landing their plane in the sea somewhere between dreary, dreamy Iceland and weathered, warm Texas. Cars released their debut EP, “The Ambiguous U,” in early 2011 to great acclaim. You can hear their music at www.destinationmoonmusic.com.
