New Years Eve feat. Moon Taxi, Kansas Bible CompanyPop/Rock
Only two short years after their glowing-robot-suit-enhanced bid in the gladiatorial combat that is Road to Bonnaroo, Moon Taxi held down a semi-primetime slot at the venerable festival’s That Tent this past summer. Their ear-friendly and solo-heavy amalgam of pop styles won’t impress anyone who lives for vintage punk, but their significant chops (especially monster keyboardist Wes Bailey) and stage presence have rightfully earned them a devoted fan base. Tonight, they ring in the new year with help from Kansas Bible Company, whose latest record, Hotel Chicamauga, lets their stellar horn section loose in a landscape that shifts quite seamlessly between soul and classic psych-rock. They rock a groove reminiscent of Chicago before they dropped “Transit Authority” from their name, but that description would be incomplete. Standing out among a talented ensemble is James Green, who doubles on lead vocal and trumpet, and who conjures Jim Morrison or Scott Walker as easily as he does any hero of soul.
