WILMINGTON — Moon Taxi has been touring since last year in support of “Silver Dream,” their latest release which was unveiled at the beginning of 2021.
According to frontman Trevor Terndrup, while on the road again the band — Tommy Putnam, Spencer Thomson, Tyler Ritter, and Wes Bailey — has been figuring out how the “Silver Dream” material and the new single “Mission” fit into the live show among the other six albums they rotate through setlists.
“The new songs, we’re just trying to figure out how to present them in the best light possible,” Terndrup said. “We’ll continue to hone in on what we’re going to do there.”
Local musicians Slick Mahoneys opened the show and made for a good complement to Moon Taxi, according to photographer Tom Dorgan of Moon Frog Media. “They’re impressive with the intricate sounds and grooves they compile,” he said.
Moon Taxi played many heavy hitters, “All Day All Night,” “Not Too Late” and “Two High,” and tucked in a cover of 4 Non Blonde’s “What’s Up?”
Below is the setlist and Dorgan’s photos from the show.
