Moon Taxi: Cabaret @ Firefly

Maybe you know who wrote Bonnaroo’s 2k12 theme song, maybe you remember that killer opener for Matisyahu/Dirty Heads’ tour, maybe you’re down with Newt Gingrich’s lunar colony and you’re looking for a ride. But if not, there’s a good chance Moon Taxi doesn’t ring a bell. So, bulletpoints: a Nashville group fending off jam-band status with a slew of proficient, likeable pop tunes to their name. A jam-band they are not, but the label isn’t totally undeserved. Proof: this video. Moon Taxi follows up a hell of a summer, well, a hell of a calendar year with a stop at Firefly Music Festival in Delware. Check out the expansive, high energy live version of “Cabaret” from Moon Taxi, Live At The Fest.
