Nashville’s Moon Taxi Headlines MTSU Homecoming Concert Oct. 2
Nashville-based rock group Moon Taxi will headline a special homecoming concert with support from Space Capone and DJ KDSML in the MTSU Student Union Ballroom on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m.
Doors for the show, which is being produced by Raider Entertainment, will open at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are available now at http://www.mtsu.edu/events. Student tickets are $10, and general public tickets are $15. Students may buy one guest ticket at the student rate and must accompany the guest to the door for verification.
Moon Taxi has just released its third album, “Mountains Beaches Cities,” self-produced by guitarist Spencer Thomson with the help of keyboardist Wes Bailey. Vance Powell, who’s also worked with Jack White and The Dead Weather, mixed the new project. It was mastered by Greg Calbi, who has worked on projects by the Talking Heads, Paul Simon and Fleet Foxes.
“One thing we didn't want to do was stray too far from what we did before,” Bailey said of “Mountains Beaches Cities.” “We really knew that things for the band had shifted in a good direction and we were growing because of our last record. We wanted to continue the energy we created from that record.”
The band, which was founded in 2006, has appeared at Bonnaroo, Forecastle and Lollapalooza and has opened for such artists as Matisyahu, Dr. John and Dirty Heads. Moon Taxi ended 2012 selling out multiple theaters on its own.
