Mountain Stage After Midnight: David Wax Museum, Quetzal, Son de Madera


Cinco de Mayo is all about the food, the dance and the music. If you promise to bring the chips and dip, this weekend’s Mountain Stage After Midnight will supply the music and dance from boundary-pushing Mexo-Americana bands like David Wax Museum, Quetzal and Son de Madera.

Broadcast from 1am-5am Saturday and Sunday mornings here on West Virginia Public Broadcasting, Mountain Stage After Midnight takes the best episodes from the show’s 31 year history and shares their memories and songs with our late-night listeners.

Clear your schedules for some Mex’n and Tex’n tunes Saturday May 2 and Sunday May 3 on “Mountain Stage After Midnight.”

One is a November 2008 show, recorded at the Creative Arts Center on the campus of West Virginia University. It features such talent as Quetzal, Son de Madera, Thea Gilmore, Mates of State and Al & the Transamericans.
