Two bands formed at Mid­dle Ten­nes­see uni­ver­si­ties will take the stage at The Sig­nal, 1810 Chest­nut St., this week­end.

In­die elec­tronic duo Cherub plays tonight, Sept. 20, at 8:30 p.m. as part of their Free Form Tour.

Cherub — the duo of Jor­dan Kel­ley and Ja­son Hu­ber — met in 2010 while stu­dents at Mid­dle Ten­nes­see State Univer­sity in Murfrees­boro.

They had their first hit in 2013 with “Doses & Mi­mosas,” which charted at No. 43 on Bill­board’s Rock Air­play and No. 23 on Al­ter­na­tive Songs charts. It also led to a con­tract with Columbia Records.

Cherub has played Lol­la­palooza, Bon­na­roo, Glas­ton­bury, Out­side Lands, Osheaga and Sum­mer Sonic fes­ti­vals. They’ve had a record go gold, and have got­ten 130 mil­lion streams on Spo­tify.

Cherub’s fans can ex­pect to hear new sin­gle “Want That” tonight along with “Body Lan­guage,” “Dancin’ Shoes” and “All In.”

Moon Taxi stops in The Sig­nal on Satur­day, Sept. 22, on its Good as Gold Tour. Show time is 8:30 p.m.

Moon Taxi formed at Bel­mont Univer­sity in Nashville. They first played backup for a rap duo be­fore book­ing gigs un­der the name Moon Taxi.

The band has had five stu­dio al­bums, ap­peared on “The Late Show with David Let­ter­man,” “Late Night with Seth My­ers” and “Jimmy Kim­mel Live.”

Moon Taxi kicked off 2018 with the re­lease of al­bum “Let the Record Play.” Any­one not fa­mil­iar with Moon Taxi’s mu­sic will still rec­og­nize the al­bum’s smash sin­gle “Two High,” fea­tured in the Jeep Com­pass com­mer­cial “Snow.”

Moon Taxi vo­cal­ist Trevor Tern­drop told Relix mag­a­zine that the song is about hope.

“Hope for un­der­stand­ing, hope for ac­cep­tance and hope for our fu­ture. We were in­spired by the sim­ple and uni­ver­sal peace sign.”

Tick­ets for Cherub are $15-$40. Tick­ets for Moon Taxi, with opener Luthi, are $27-$30.
