According to Moonalice legend, the higher the audience, the better the band. In ancient times, Moonalice bands and Moonalice hippies lived in harmony, sharing low tones and hemp derivatives to mutual benefit. In modern times, no audience has been higher for Moonalice show than the one in Big Sky. The stage was 7,200 feet above sea level!!! And the stage was actually the lowest level of the amphitheater. Moonalice legend says little about thin air, but the band did some training at the gig in Tahoe City, where the elevation was 6,000 feet. Chubby Wombat is convinced that audiences are hogging all the oxygen at these high elevation venues. No matter. The legend proved correct again, as Big Sky’s audience helped the band play at a new level. Showtime was 6pm, a twilight hour in the mountains, pretty much as late as a band can play outdoors in Big Sky without freezing to death. The mountain rocked . . . it’s part of the legend.
