David Wax Museum, Vikesh Kapoor, Barna Howard

When: Wed., Dec. 5, 8:30 p.m. 2012


David Wax Museum is actually led by a guy named David Wax. The name is not nearly as creative as some of the band's instrumentation, which includes a percussive instrument made with a donkey jawbone and knitting needles that drum on fiddle strings. That's only part of what makes David Wax Museum more interesting than your average folk band. For the past few years, DWM has incorporated traditional Mexican music and American folk into a less cleverly named hybrid called "Mexo-Americana." David Wax Museum resisdes in Boston, but sounds right at home on NPR and would fare well among the folkies in Portland. It's warm and cuddly music, and there's not a damn thing wrong with that.
