Happy St. Patrick’s Day. This trio from Boston came into our kitchen with homegrown produce and organic chocolate and a willingness to help begin the restoration of our ad-hoc badminton court in the backyard. They’ve opened for the Avett Brothers and their album, “The Carpenter Bird” was listed by the Boston Globe as one of the top ten Boston area albums of 2009. They’ve also been featured by NPR. We were lucky to have them and such kind and generous people to boot.
David Wax traveled to Mexico for 3 years in order to study various forms of Mexican folk music and you can definitely hear the influence, following the lead of previous hybrid indie rock bands such as Beirut.
Here they are performing The Persimmon Tree in our Kitchen and yes that is a donkey jaw bone. We’re very much looking forward to hearing more from The David Wax Museum, perhaps even as part of the Save the Monkeywhale Festival 2010. Suz’s dress was designed by Melanie Renee.
