Date/Time

Jul 6, 2013

Description

“…one of the top ten acts of 2011’s South by Southwest” —T­ime Magazine

“Pure, irresistible joy.” —NPR

When future music historians look back at the strong currents circulating between the Americas in the 21st century, they will find Los Lobos, Calexico and a charismatic, lanky Missourian singing tight harmony with a Southern belle rattling the jawbone of a donkey.

David Wax and Suz Slezak form the artistic core of the David Wax Museum and, together with multi-instrumentalist Greg Glassman, fuse traditional Mexican folk with American roots and indie rock to create a Mexo-Americana aesthetic.

Combining Latin rhythms, infectious melodies and call-and-response hollering, DWM was hailed by Time for its “virtuosic musical skill and virtuous harmonies” and has built a reputation among concertgoers all over the U.S, Canada, Europe and China for “kicking up a cloud of excitement with their high-energy border-crossing sensibility” (The New Yorker).

The bonfire of success David Wax Museum has kindled with its innovative, grass-roots approach is currently roaring. After years busking at house concerts and touring with The Avett Brothers, the Carolina Chocolate Drops and the Old 97s, DWM picked up the 2010 Boston Music Awards Americana Artist of the Year.
