Headliners MGMT filled Laurence Frost Amphitheatre on Saturday afternoon with more than 5,000 students and guests, but never performed high school hit “Kids,” their most famous song.
Modest Mouse headlined the Frost Revival Music and Arts Festival on Saturday afternoon at the Laurence Frost Amphitheater, marking the first time the venue had been used for this large of an event since the 1980s.
The May 19 Frost Revival show may demonstrate that events at Frost Amphitheater are more financially and logistically viable. The amphitheater, which used to host such acts as the Grateful Dead, has seen less frequent use over the last decade, largely because of the high cost to operate the venue.
Frost Amphitheatre is set to come alive again on May 19 with a performance by Modest Mouse in the first Frost Revival Concert. Tickets for the show, with opening acts Eyes Lips Eyes and Benjamin Francis Leftwich, will go on sale April 23 at a student price of $20.
