The 6th annual Naukabout Festival on Cape Cod is SATURDAY and the lineup is fantastic! This year there’s a big focus on up and coming local acts – from the Cape and also out of the Boston area. Throw in a FUN headlining band from NYC and a rising act out of Philly and you have a day filled with some seriously solid music!
Here’s a taste of just some of the artists performing on Saturday at the Barnstable County Fairgrounds (North Falmouth):
Jukebox the Ghost – “Somebody”
David Wax Museum – “Harder Before it Gets Easier”
Toy Soldiers – “Throw Me Down”
Tall Heights – “I Don’t Know, I Don’t Know”

The David Wax Museum hits the stage tonight at Flatbread Company – by the Martha’s Vineyard airport. This Mexo-Americana band has a truly unique sound that will get you moving! The night will begin with an “In the Round” featuring some incredible local singer/songwriters – Alex Karalekas, Jason Nichols, Alysse Fischer and Lydia Fischer.
A wonderful night of music to kick off the holiday weekend, and just $18 at the door!

“Will You Be Sleeping?”
I’m REALLY loving the new David Wax Museum single and cannot wait to sit and listen to their entire new album, Knock Knock Get Up, which will be released September 4th. They are here on the island to play a TargetCancer event, so tune in as they swing by the studio at mvyradio tomorrow (SUNDAY) at around 1:20pm! And check out these two amazing videos for the new single:

David Wax Museum – “Born With A Broken Heart”
SO flipping excited about Newport Folk… in just a few days! This Boston-based band will be at the festival for their second year in a row, after NPR named their 2010 set one of the best moments of the festival.

Newport Folk Festival
With increased recognition from NPR, a much talked about performance at Newport Folk this past summer, and a Boston Music Award for ‘Americana Artist of the Year’, the David Wax Museum is gaining more and more acclaim in Boston and beyond. I’ve yet to catch the group live, but this recently posted Daytrotter session gives me a good taste of that experience. I’m loving the sound… a mixed genre, created by Wax’s experiences growing up in the Midwest and a yearlong fellowship studying folk music in the Mexican countryside.
