Moon Taxi’s New Year’s Mash-Up
Moon Taxi celebrated New Year’s Eve with a big hometown show at Nashville, TN’s Exit//In. Instead of one special New Year’s cover, the band nodded to several groups who made an impact on the musical landscape throughout 2011 with a nearly 10-minute mash-up that referenced songs by Lady Gaga, My Morning Jacket, Skrillex, Kanye West/Jay-Z, Black Keys and Foster The People. In addition, Jonas Shultz sat in on saxophone for several tunes during the show while The Ford brothers from opening act The Apache Relay joined the band for a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run” as the first song of 2012. Moon Taxi will perform next at Bowling Green, KY’s Tidballs on January 20.
