Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

David Wax Museum/Bombadil

When: Wed., Oct. 2, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Championing the strain of “Mexo-Americana music” (a blend of Mexican Son and Americana), David Wax Museum contemporizes a musical tradition that extends back to the 18th century. Singer David Wax plays the jarana, which is similar to the guitar. Suz Slezak joins him on vocals and fiddle and, interestingly, quijada, which is a percussion instrument crafted from a donkey’s jawbone. Knock Knock Get Up, the band’s 2012 release, is a good starting point for those curious about the Mexo-Americana sound. Songs like “Harder Before it Gets Easier” sound like typical folk-rock output on the surface, but that wistful accordion will surely conjure images of the dusty streets of Veracruz. Go with a double of Cuervo for this show and do bring your dancing shoes. (Sandy)
