Moscow’s Humble Burger certainly lives up to its name in the best way, having quietly established itself as one of Idaho’s most diverse live venues in the last of couple years. The restaurant’s flagship music festival, appropriately called Modest Music Fest, kicks off for the first time this weekend, with 30 acts performing on five stages scattered throughout downtown Moscow. Some of the fest’s out-of-town acts include Seattle bands Cataldo and Cosmos, and Marshall McLean, Jango, the Dancing Plague of 1518 and Itchy Kitty are among the participating Spokane artists. The festival saves its two biggest names, both Idaho stalwarts, for last: Indie rockers Finn Riggins and former Volume headliners Built to Spill play on Sunday starting at 6:30 pm.
