Walmart AMP | Rogers, Arkansas
Jump in and jam along to indie rock icons Pixies & Modest Mouse on Friday, June 28th, as they shake the Walmart Arkansas Music Pavilion down to its core with guest singer Cat Power! Rejoice in the exquisitely eccentric sound that fronted the ‘90s alt-rock boom, courtesy of Boston Music Award winners Pixies’ signature surf-punk symphonies, which often feature Alternative Airplay hits “Velouria,” “Here Comes Your Man” and “Letters to Memphis.” GRAMMY Award-nominated Modest Mouse, meanwhile, will follow up with the simmering anthems that fueled their Billboard 200 #1 album We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank, with crowd-pleasing performances of classic songs like “Float On” and “Lampshades on Fire.” Presented by Live Nation, our two co-headlining bands will continue last year’s joint tour this summer of ‘24, plotting a path to 23 of North America’s foremost concert venues, which include the city of Rogers’ very own acoustically refined Walmart AMP.

Strange is the sound yet still so irresistibly infectious. Alternative rock outfit Pixies is geared up to give you an intoxicating live exhibition of the songs that influenced the legends of Pearl Jam, Radiohead, and Nirvana. Renowned for frontman Black Francis’ brilliantly bizarre lyrics, the Boston Music Award-winning act shall enthrall with their signature “loud-quiet-loud” dynamics, jagged guitar riffs, and surf-punk melodies. Take this once-in-a-blue-moon chance to experience the band’s genre-defining discography, from their Platinum album Doolittle to their latest Doggerel collection, and jam it out to Billboard Alternative Airplay hits like "Here Comes Your Man,” “Velouria,” and “Letter to Memphis.”
Following the 25th Anniversary of their breakout sophomore record, GRAMMY-nominated group Modest Mouse continues their roadshow rampage overflowing with indie rock jams. Raw. Simmering. Wide-eyed. Our second headliner’s music takes on a feverishly punky wavelength that’ll lure you into a trance, featuring much-anticipated performances of Double A smash hits “Float On,” “Lampshades on Fire,” and “We Are Between.” Equal parts anthemic and idiosyncratic, Modest Mouse promises fans a psychic soundscape that elevated the Pacific Northwest underground beyond grunge, themed from their Platinum-certified and Billboard 200 chart-topping albums Good News for People Who Love Bad News and We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank.
“Queen of Sadcore” Cat Power will open the night as the event’s guest act, coating the venue with a swath of somber melodies that bridge blues, rock, and soul, which frequently include cathartic classics such as “The Greatest” and “Sea of Love.”
