As the encore for their 12th annual moe.down Festival in Mohawk, NY, the band members of the festival's namesake, moe., paid tribute to the recently-deceased Steve Jobs by performing their song Crab Eyes ... entirely on iPads
Four of the iPads were running standard instruments in the GarageBand iOS app to play the guitar, bass, and drums parts. The $2 app Mallets was used to perform the song's vibraphone parts. "We performed the song live and what you hear is a live matrix mix (stereo audience mix blended with a stereo soundboard mix). There are no overdubs, and this is one take, live." For a comparison, check out Crab Eyes performed live on more traditional instruments
at the All Good Festival in 2007.
