Rock fans along the east coast had better start preparing for an epic trip around the moons this fall, as Moon Taxi and Moon Hooch will play four shows in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC come October. The newly added concerts were announced on Friday morning and will see both rock bands playing at New York City’s Brooklyn Steel on Oct. 24, Philadelphia’s Electric Factory on Oct. 26 and Washington’s 9:30 Club on Oct. 27-28. Tickets for the shows will be going on sale beginning next Friday, July 27.
Moon Taxi’s upcoming appearance at Brooklyn Steel will be their first time performing at the relatively new Brooklyn warehouse-styled venue, which opened its doors just last April. The band from Tennessee has continued their seemingly never-ending tour schedule throughout much of this year so far in the promotion of their fifth studio album, Let The Record Play, which arrived back on Jan. 19 via RCA Records. Prior to their upcoming debut at Brooklyn Steel, Moon Taxi will join up with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Manchester Orchestra for a gig at King County's Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington on August 12. The band is also scheduled to share the bill with Fitz & The Tantrums and WALK THE MOON as part of the Jeep On The Rocks concert event at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado on Oct. 6. Tickets for the two shows are on sale now and can be purchased by clicking here.
“[We are] at our best when we're on a big, outdoor stage. We can play as loud as we want, where no one can hear anything," Moon Taxi keyboardist Wes Bailey told AXS in a recent interview. With such confidence beaming from the band and their loudspeakers, fans should be ready for anything when they come to Red Rocks and Marymoor Park later this year.
