David Wax Museum at B.O.M.B. Fest in May (more by Eric M. Townsend)
"David Wax is a rabbi in New Jersey recently accused of murder, but that's not the David Wax who fronts the David Wax Museum, a Latin folk band! This is all a terrible coincidence. David Wax and the other members play a raucous, Mexican-tinged folk music that also pays homage to indie rock (but without any ironic detachment)."David Wax Museum kicked off a run of summer dates at Clearwater Festival last month. They've got more scheduled through September including a free NYC show tonight (7/27) in Madison Square Park, before they hit the SOLD OUT Newport Folk Festival this weekend. Tonight's show is part of the Madison Square Music Oval Lawn Series, which presents free music in Madison Square Park every Wednesday through August 10. Doors open at 7 PM.
[Express Night Out]
Wanda Jackson, who also plays Newport, plays a free show in NYC tonight (7/27) too. Hers is at Central Park Summerstage with Imeida May.
The Head and the Heart also play Newport and have more shows coming up including 3 headlining shows in NYC, and one at the Dave Matthews Band Caravan which hits Governors Island for three days (8/26-28). They play Governors Island that Saturday, as do David Wax Museum (don't hold it against them).,

The events will feature a diverse lineup of musical talent performing on multiple stages during the day and a full set by headliners Dave Matthews Band each night.

John Wesley Harding and Eugene Mirman at LPR in 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
"I wanted to bring together my novel writing friends (who mostly envy my musician friends) and my musician friends (who mostly envy my novel writing friends) under one flag," says John Wesley Harding. "Then add Eugene Mirman and his comedians of comedy... The fact is: I like everyone who's performing.Novelist/singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding brings his Cabinet of Wonders back to City Winery on March 11th. Joining him in his quest for the perfect variety show will be an all-star lineup featuring Andrew Bird, David Wax Museum, Paul Muldoon, Tift Merritt, Daniel Felsenfeld & The Jessold Consort, Eugene Mirman, JWH, Jonathan Coe and Kristin Hersh. A little more than a month later, he'll do it again with another show at City Winery on April 22, this time featuring "Rick Moody, Eugene Mirman & more". More details on that one TBA.
In between (and before) those dates, John Wesley Harding AKA Wesley Stace will do readings in and around the area, including one on 3/10 at Book Court in Brooklyn and one on 3/17 as part of a panel at LIO in Brooklyn. He'll be speaking about Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, his new book. Maybe you read about it in the New York Times:
WESLEY STACE'S new book, "Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer," is both a murder mystery and a novel about classical music, with a character who sometimes assumes another identity. Mr. Stace, an enthusiastic, donnish Englishman with an honors degree in English literature from Jesus College, Cambridge, and a head stuffed full of historical trivia, is an expert on both double lives and music. Improbably, he is also John Wesley Harding, an Elvis Costello-like singer-songwriter and folk rocker who has released more than a dozen records and is cool enough to have enlisted most of the Decemberists as the backup band on a forthcoming album.Eugene Mirman talks with Stace about the book in a video you can watch below. Eugene Mirman can also be found at Union Hall in Brooklyn this Sunday, 3/6.
The David Wax Museum, who recently played their own show at City Winery (and who are part of John Wesley's Cabinet on 3/11), will also be at SXSW where you'll be able to catch them at a BrooklynVegan day party right at noon on Friday, 3/18 at Barbarella on Red River. Stay tuned for more details on that party coming shortly (but I can say it is the same one Middle Brother is playing later in the day). More David Wax dates at their website.
All Stace & Andrew Bird dates are below...
Children under 12 are half price for the five upcoming Allen Toussaint shows happening at Joe's Pub. Note the noon start time.
Speaking of Joe's Pub, Melvin Van Peebles returns to the venue on January 27th with his group Laxative..."When asked why the title, Melvin replied, "Why? ...'cause they're a crew of musicians who make shit happen and get shit done. That's why!" The new show,"Yeah unhunH Sure ... The Rubber, ie. Your Behind, Meeting The Road, Do Jesus, Hand To Heaven Street Songs," will feature tunes taken from Melvin's Broadway shows, movies and recordings."
