After its 2008 live album, “Live Ride,” led to a swarm of new fans and opening slots for the likes of Gov’t Mule, Matisyahu and Umphrey’s McGee, indie-progressive rock band Moon Taxi wasted no time capitalizing on the momentum. The group’s latest album, “Cabaret,” was released earlier this year, and its first single, “Mercury,” is winning over fans and critics. Melding cues from artists such as minimalist composer Phillip Glass and iconic bands such as the Beatles and Radiohead, Moon Taxi evokes the musical revolution of the ’60s and ’70s, but adds a modern spin, creating an altogether eclectic sound. Moon Taxi performs at Capital Ale House on Wednesday, Nov. 28, at 8 p.m. $10-$12. capitalalehouse.com.
