David Wax Museum Play the Early Show Tomorrow at Mercury LoungeDecember 29th, 2016
Singer-songwriter David Wax bonded over music with singer-fiddler Suz Slezak close to a decade ago in Cambridge, Mass. And with a healthy dash of pop added to his interest in Mexican folk and her take on Appalachian-inspired American folk, their band, David Wax Museum, was born. They’ve steadily recorded and toured ever since, and things have gone so well that the two eventually married and began a family. Following the release of 2015’s Guesthouse (stream it below), David Wax Museum (above, performing “Guesthouse” live in concert for WXPN FM) just put out a new EP, A La Rumba Rumba (stream it below)—“a colorful exploration of the Latin American folk music that has inspired us over the years”—last month. See them tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge. Auld Lang Syne, out of Rochester, N.Y., open the show.
