Modest Mouse To Play US Open of Surfing

The music lineup for the 2013 Vans US Open of Surfing has been announced and will feature artists- Modest Mouse, The Faint and Twin Shadow. The annual music stage is the largest free concert stage of the summer and will also feature Huntington Beach native, Matt Costa and emerging artist, FMLYBND. “Over the years, the annual music stage has developed into a key component of the US Open. It defines the culture of this amazing action sports and lifestyle festival,” says Jennifer Lau, Vice President of IMG. “With Vans’ deep roots in music, this year’s stage line-up will be one of the best yet.”

FMLYBND stated, “Being a bunch of grungy kids growing up surfing and skating all over Southern California, we feel incredibly honored to be playing the US Open this year. And the fact the we are sharing the stage with Twin Shadow, The Faint, Matt Costa, and Modest Mouse is pretty insane. It’s just the beginning for FMLYBND and we are stoked to be starting out our career on this platform, playing with these bands. It’s only up from here.”

The Vans US Open of Surfing will feature two days of concerts Thursday and Friday, July 25th & 26th, at the conclusion of the surfing competition. All concerts are free and open to the public.
