Jefferson Public Radio is thrilled to bring Open Air
favorite, David Wax Museum
, to the Southern Oregon University Music Recital Hall on December 6, 2012 at 7:30pm. With a free date between their Portland and San Francisco tour dates, JPR jumped at the chance to bring this hot new emerging band to Ashland.
David Wax Museum
has kindled a bonfire of success with its innovative, grass-roots musical approach. After touring with The Avett Brothers, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and the Old 97s, DWM picked up the 2010 Boston Music Awards Americana Artist of the Year. In 2011 they released their second album, the acclaimed Everything Is Saved
. The album’s single "Born with a Broken Heart" won the BMA’s Song of the Year. But critical mass came with the band’s breakout performance at the 2010 Newport Folk Festival, an opportunity won by DWM fans in an online competition. NPR called their concert at Newport a highlight of the entire weekend with Bob Boilen of All Songs Considered
calling their sound “pure, irresistible joy.” The Museum was invited back to Newport to play the 2011 main stage. With an illustration in The New Yorker
