Best of Boston

2013 BEST Live Act

David Wax Museum

Have you ever seen someone play a quijada—that is, a donkey jawbone with the rattling teeth still in place? That’s the kind of surprise you can expect from the raucously entertaining David Wax Museum, a Boston Music Award-winning band that plays an infectious, knee-slapping blend of Americana, folk, and Mexican son rhythms. The group is poised to hit the bigtime (especially after the release of their superb fourth album, Knock Knock Get Up, last fall), but for now you can still catch them at intimate venues when they roll through New England. Dancing shoes recommended.

    Love David Wax Museum, but as far as best live act goes Boston’s best kept secret is the Brew. These guys are absolutely killing it and completely under the radar.
