In advance to Total War’s October performance as part of Moog Music’s AHA AVL series, Jeremy Rose joked that it was nice to be able to invite friend to a free show that wasn’t in someone’s basement. Rose is the local indie-rock band’s lead singer and guitarist; the group also includes Ory Petty and Adam Woleslagle. AHA AVL bands can borrow any of the gear that Moog manufactures, beginning a month before the show, leading to some creative new renditions of songs. “There are no expectations on how they use it or if they use it,” says Alex Medley, Moog’s special events manager.

Xpress is partnering with Moog Music to curate the AHA AVL shows. Videos from the series will be hosted on the Xpress website. Still to come: Morbids on Wednesday, Feb. 12 and Hermit Kings on Wednesday, March 19. The live performance are free but by invite. To attend, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
