David Wax Museum, John Gorka, Indiana Jones at Prescott Park

DAVID WAX MUSEUM Wednesday Night!
Red Horse (John Gorka, Eliza Gilykson, Lucy Kaplansky), Catie Curtis, and more on Sunday




The David Wax Museum was to be our "discovery" act this season. Instead, it was me who discovered their buzz was too strong and tons of you have already caught wind of their incredible sound.


You know a band is unbelievable when they perform the Newport Folk Festival and walk away being hailed as the highlight by NPR.


Or, being a top pick by TIME Magazine at South by Southwest.


That, and being anointed as Boston's Artist of the Year (2010 Boston Music Awards).


Or maybe just for having a donkey jawbone as their signature instrument.

In any case, you can not miss this one.


Tomorrow (Wednesday, 7pm), as part of the River House Restaurant Concert Series, the David Wax Museum will electrify our audience with their Latin rhythms, call-and-response hollering, and donkey jawbone rattling.


If you are after something innovative and fresh, while still familiar and traditional...catch this concert.


And, join us on Sunday afternoon (1pm) for our Roots & Rhythm Festival as we welcome the powerhouse folk trio Redhorse (John Gorka, Lucy Kaplansky, and Eliza Gilykson), as well as singer/songwriter Catie Curtis, dynamic duo (and JUNO nominated) Dala, and the hot Crunchy Western Boys.


You can also enjoy timeless cinema as we present Indiana Jones, Raiders of the Lost Ark as our next movie under the stars on Monday, August 15 (dusk), as well as the final performance of our Shakespeare in Prescott Park A Midsummer Night's Dream this Saturday at 2pm.


AND, we're excited to announce that we have rescheduled our originally rain-out movie, E.T. for Tuesday, August 23.

See you in the park!
