Pioneering folk musicians David Wax and Suz Slezak are the plucky husband-wife duo behind the eclectic, exuberant “Mexo-Americana” band David Wax Museum.

In addition to their national TV debut in 2019 on CBS This Morning: Saturday, the band has been featured in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, TIME Magazine and The New Yorker. They built bridges performing at the wedding of Democratic presidential hopeful (now Transportation Secretary) Pete Buttigieg and his husband Chasten–and in 2021 their plaintive ballad “Big Sur” debuted during the marriage scene on Netflix #1 show, Firefly Lane.

In early 2022, David and Suz return to the road, bursting with songs from two new albums (Remember My Future and Euphoric Ouroboric), as well as Suz’s debut solo album, Our Wings May Be Featherless (releasing March 4, 2022 on Nine Mile Records).  They are joined by indomitable multi-instrumentalist Alec Spiegelman, whose extraordinary talent is showcased on both new band albums, which he produced at his Brooklyn studio. The combined musicianship of these three artists, who have been performing and recording together for nearly 15 years, is absolutely electric on stage. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable evening.

Covid-19 Protocols:

We are very excited to be hosting live music shows again in our listening room. OLS is committed to providing a safe environment for all who work, listen, or perform live music in our venue. Because our venue is so small, we will require all staff, volunteers, performers, and patrons to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 when they attend OLS events AND to wear masks indoors unless they are actively drinking, eating, or performing.

Proof of vaccine must come directly from the health care provider that performed the vaccination and can be a photo or physical copy of the vaccination card or record with an accompanying photo ID. Full vaccination means that the date of the performance you are attending is:

*at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or

*at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID vaccine.

We hope we can ease these restrictions once further progress has been made reducing transmission of the virus. Until then, we greatly appreciate your patience and cooperation.

One Longfellow Square does not assume liability; the ticket holder will assume all risks involved. By purchasing a ticket to this event you agree to assume full liability for any risks incurred before, during and after the event and agree to the current Terms of Use.
