Looks like the Moog Museum is finally open (on Bob's birthday, no less):

Looks like I need to head back up to the mountains...

Oh, my... My band plays the Orange Peel on July 12. Looks like I'm going to have to get to town early for a visit to the Moogseum.

(Which almost guarantees I'll be late for load-in.)

The Orange Peel is where Bob's memorial celebration was held. A great venue. Enjoy the gig and your trip to the Moogseum.

Thanks! We play there about once a year, but it always seems to be in the heat of the summer. The place isn't air-conditioned, which makes it tough on an old codger like me!

At the very least, we're thinking to head to the mountains this weekend to escape the beastly heat down here in the flatlands (I think I saw that we may set records). Unfortunately, we're not headed for Asheville this time, but maybe if I look all pitiful...

If they want people to pronounce it "mogue" (which they seemed to the one time I was at the factory), calling it the "Moogseum" isn't exactly helping their cause.

The great thing about music is that there's always something to learn. The frustrating thing about music is that there's always something to learn!

I spent several hours there going through the factory tour last time I was in Asheville (only a couple hours from Charlotte!). Brought the kids along - great experience!

Just so people know--the museum and the factory both have Broadway addresses but they are not on the same street.

Coming into downtown from the direction of the airport on 26, take the Merrimon Ave exit. If you want the museum, take a left at the light at the end of the ramp. That is actually Broadway, for the space of about six blocks. Look for the museum on your left before you pass Walnut.

If you want the factory, however, make the left on Broadway and then immediately a right on Woodfin, the first light. Go down the hill one block and make your first right on... Broadway. (Lexington changes its name to Broadway at that intersection but I don't remember what the street signs say.) Anyway, go back under 26 and you'll see the factory on your right.

You really can't miss it. smile
