About Moog Music:

Asheville is the headquarters of Moog Music, the company Bob Moog formed in 1963.  Moog’s push for continual innovation permeates the company’s culture to this day.  In 2008, they produced the groundbreaking Moog Guitar and more projects are currently in development.  2010 marks a landmark in the company’s history as the 40th anniversary of the MiniMoog, one of the most popular of the Moog synthesizers, which will certainly be a focus of the MoogFest 2010 weekend.

MOUNTAIN GOATS, DR. DOG & LOCAL NATIVES CONFIRM SHOWS AT ACADEMY OF CONTEMPORARY MUSIC’S NEW LIVE MUSIC VENUE IN OKLAHOMA CITY

“PERFORMANCE LAB” WILL GIVE STUDENTS HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE BOOKING, PRODUCING, AND PROMOTING SHOWS


This fall, the Academy of Contemporary Music will open up a new live music venue set to host concerts by The Mountain Goats (10/6), Dr. Dog (11/10), and rising indie buzzband Local Natives (10/5). Located in Oklahoma City’s Bricktown District, the 350 capacity club has yet to open its doors, but it’s already become an in-demand stop for touring bands. The Performance Lab, as the space is currently known, will serve not only as a venue for bands on the road, but also as a public performance space for local student bands. In addition, it will offer music business students hands-on experience in the world of booking, producing and promoting shows. Since its creation, The Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma has generated worldwide buzz with its innovative, groundbreaking approach to music education – the first of its kind in the United States. The school, which grants a two-year associate’s degree in music performance and production, is the U.S. branch of Britain’s groundbreaking Academy of Contemporary Music, based in Guildford, England.
