Moonstruck

Luna may be breaking up, but Dean Wareham is still in love with the music

He sighs again, and there's another pregnant pause. "I was saying before that being in a band is a lot like dating someone," he says finally, "but it's really an apt metaphor when it comes to the music, because music is a lot like love. The best of it happens by chance, by happenstance, by accident--there has to be some magic in the room. It ought to surprise you. And for me, the great thing about doing this tour--the last one--is that the fact that it's the last has either changed the energy of the shows or keyed me into the energy that was always there. All I know is, for me, the band has a new energy. The audiences have a new energy. It feels...special." But then he puts his heart away and returns to wry Wareham form. "You could say that breaking up has been good for business."

Fourteen years after front man Dean Wareham (second from left) formed the band, Luna plays its last show in Dallas on Saturday.
