Live on the Green wraps up final night

Live on Green

Heavy rainfall and muddy ground couldn’t bog down hometown band, Moon Taxi’s closing performance of the Live on the Green concert series.

Thursday night’s show was the final night of the series, now in its fifth year.

The night began with The Weeks, an indie band out of Jackson, Miss., performing songs from their most recent album “Dear Bo Jackson.”

The Southern and alternative rock musicians formed as teenagers in 2006 and were signed just two years later.

While their newest album has received good reactions, their earlier albums “Comeback Cadillac” and “Gutter Gaunt Gangster” remain popular with fans.

Following The Weeks, was The Wild Feathers, a new all-american band out of Texas.

The Wild Feathers just released their first album on Aug. 9.

The band played songs from their debut album “The Wild Feathers,” including “American” and “The Ceiling,” which received a satisfying response from the crowd, who seemed to enjoy their rock and indie style of music.

Despite the humid and sticky weather, the crowd remained excited as the headliner Moon Taxi took the stage.

Moon Taxi, a local band from Nashville, is known for their American indie-rock sound.

Starting in 2006, the band has created three successful albums, “Live Ride,” “Melodica,” and “Cabaret.” Moon Taxi has just released a new album “Mountains Beaches Cities” this past Tuesday.

Their set was mainly composed of songs from previous albums including “The New Black” and “Mercury.”
