Get your Moog on!
Today begins the 5 day Moog Festival in Asheville, NC dedicated to the synthesis of technology, art, science and music. Artists, engineers, and enthusiasts of Bob Moog pay tribute to the legacy of the analog synthesizer guru who made his home here. Featuring landmark performances by groups we’ve never heard of like: electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk 3D; iconic electro-pop duo Pet Shop Boys; self-declared “anti popstar” M.I.A.; super producer Nile Rodgers with his band CHIC; plus a rare performance by UK’s Darkstar; Animal Collective’s Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks featuring former members of Dirty Projectors and Ponytail; German heavyweight trio Moderat; Mad Decent’s Dillon Francis and Riff Raff; Zed’s Dead; El-P; and Factory Floor.
