WILMINGTON — Last weekend Nashville’s indie rockers Moon Taxi landed at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater with Sparkle City Disco, a group of vinyl-spinning DJs also out of Nashville.

Sparkle City opened the show by flipping and blending tracks, including Dee Gees’ (Foo Fighters latest incognito front) “You Should Be Dancing” from their recent album “Hail Satan” (a handful of vinyls were released on Record Store Day only). Sparkle City Disco will be releasing their first original track, “Shadow Lane,” this Friday.

Moon Taxi played through many radio favorites, including “All Day All Night” and “It’s Not Too Late.” Yet, the band also threw in a few covers, throwbacks to early ’80s rock like Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark.”

According to MoonFrog Media photographer Tom Dorgan, the show was “definitely one of the more age-diverse crowds — dancing to fun rock-pop definitely transcends generations for this band’s fan base.”
