Beachland Tavern, Cleveland, OH
Here at the Beachland we’re pleased to not have just one artist with Latin influences (the Cuban-Canadian Alex Cuba, who plays here on September 30th), but two. David Wax Museum, a Boston-based duo, have won the hearts of public radio lovers, listeners, and writers, with a sexy and stylish sound that draws from Mexican styles like son jarocho, the jarana, and the juapangera. Don’t know what those are? Well, let David Wax Museum -- David Wax and his lovely violin partner, Suz Slezak -- play folky English-language indie rock that seriously borrows from a wide variety of Mexican traditions. This surprising band plays tonight at the Beachland along with Bombadil, a three-piece band whose new album, Metrics of Affection, is now out on Ramseur Records. They, not unlike David Wax Museum, aren't afraid to include everything from rock, soul, and even older musical traditions in their pop mixture.
