David Wax Museum was declared “The breakout act at the Newport Folk Fest last year” by Paste. They solidified their reputation this year and have tour dates scheduled all the way out to March 2012! DWM are hot; not like a fleeting flash or a passing trend, they embrace enduring and influential styles of Latin America, weaving them flawlessly into classic folk.
Rob Kirkpatrick from Huffington Post dubbed them The Best Band You Might Not Know, and after hearing them live was
…simultaneously excited to hear a great act on the verge of blowing up while lamenting that the band is destined for mainstream audiences and bigger venues from here on out. It’s bound to happen for the band. They’re that good. It’ll be our loss and our gain.
I second this assessment and encourage one and all to throw themselves on this music explosion by attending Wednesday’s show at 9:30 Club, September 14th.
Submit your favorite “discovery band,” the one you claim as yours, the one you swear to your friends “I saw them in [year] before [band name] hit it big,” to enter to win a pair of tickets to David Wax Museum and be prepared to stomp your feet and witness them as they “blow up”!
The winner will be chosen on Monday (9/12) at noon.
