“When you’re not feeling good about yourself, a number one record doesn’t matter.”
After closing the first set with “Dear Mr. Fantasy”, Mason took a short break, and soon returned with a clear focus on his solo work. “We Just Disagree” opened the second set, noting to all that this was now a Dave Mason show.

I really liked the concept of Moogfest. A three-day festival in Robert Moog’s home base of Asheville, NC, saluting the man and the music that his synthesizer has helped to create. Spread out over five venues in Asheville, many of the festival’s big shows took place at the Asheville Civic Center, and the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium, which organizers set up so that concertgoers could easily walk inside from one venue to the other.
MGMT, Devo, Van Dyke Parks, Jonsi and others will celebrate Robert Moog and the music his inventions influenced.
A band I’ve never seen, in a venue I’ve been to before. In some situations, that might be a setup for an uncertain evening, but when its Procol Harum at Wolf Trap, the possibilities are much more favorable.
