A blindfolded concert experience.
Come enjoy a one-of-a-kind musical event that will delight your senses. In an effort to enhance, inform & challenge the way you listen to live music, David Wax Museum and Lowland Hum will be performing in the round and in the dark. Upon entering the venue, you will be given a blindfold and led to your seat by an usher. For the next 75 minutes, you will experience a concert with heightened aural perception and no visual or technological distractions. Both bands are husband-and-wife duos from Charlottesville, Virginia who tour internationally and have appeared on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series.
What audience members have said about the experience:
"Sonically (or acoustically) it was one of the most interesting musical experiences I have ever been a part of."
"...intimate, intriguing, spiritual and uplifting."
"It was a truly unique and wonderful experience... heightened the senses, loved it!"
"Very freeing... meditative... An introvert's dream."
Should I bring anything?
We'll provide the blindfolds, but if you'd be more comfortable with your own scarf or bandana, feel free to bring it.
How long will I be blindfolded?
The concert typically last 60-75 minutes, but former audience members have said the concert goes by in a flash!
What if I get nervous?
Feel free to remove your blindfold if it is causing anxiety. We're trying to enhance your experience of the music not give you heartburn.
What about using the bathroom?
You may remove your blindfold and find your way to the bathroom during the performance if necessary.
David Wax museum
David Wax Museum blends traditional Mexican folk music with American rock to create their signature Mexo-Americana sound. With NPR hailing them as "pure, irresistible joy" and raves everywhere from SPIN and Entertainment Weekly to The New York Times and The Guardian (which dubbed the music "global crossover at its best"), they have performed on the main stage at the Newport Folk Festival and were chosen by TIME.com as one of the "Ten Acts that Rocked South By Southwest". They have toured around the globe including to Czech Republic and China, and have earned invitations to support The Avett Brothers, Carolina Chocolate Drops, Buena Vista Social Club, and more. In 2017, the band's co-founders David Wax and Suz Slezak celebrated their 10th year of making music together, performed their 1000th show, and released their seventh record, Electric Artifacts, a compilation of unreleased material from the past decade. For the Concert in the Blind, David & Suz will perform as a duo.
Lowland Hum is an art-folk band based in Charlottesville, Virginia, made up of husband/wife team Daniel and Lauren Goans. The band's songs have been described as poetic and evocative, and their arrangements minimal, hushed and dynamic. Lowland Hum’s performances are characterized by the space they create together for their audiences. Their sharing style paves the way for moments of intimate vulnerability and levity alike. Daniel and Lauren are a prolific, two-person creative factory writing, arranging and producing all of their own music, and honing a cohesive design aesthetic to match the hushed simplicity of their sound. So far in 2019, Lowland Hum released their fourth full length album, Glyphonic, and completed a US headline tour. Both their live show and studio releases have garnered critical acclaim from the likes of NPR, Paste Magazine, Huffington Post, The Wall Street Journal, LA Times, The Washington Post, American Songwriter and others.
