If you're into jambands and you grew up in the Northeast, you're probably quite familiar with the band moe. Maybe you've even had your face melted off at one of their shows! Back during Labor Day Weekend at the 12th annual moe.down festival in Mohawk, New York, the band performed their song “Crab Eyes” using five iPads. And it was awesome!
Explains moe. guitarist Al Schnier to MacWorld: "Four of the iPads were running standard instruments in the GarageBand iOS app to play the guitar, bass, and drums parts. Percussionist Jim Loughin used a $2 app called Mallets to perform the song’s vibraphone parts." After a lot of editing, the band posted an incredible video of the performance last week and dedicated it to Steve Jobs. It's an incredible testament to how the technology he helped mold has revolutionized the music game. I think any musichead, Apple geek, or simple iPad enthusiast will enjoy it, so check it out.
