Next@Wex Fest featuring The National |
Artful indie scene leaders the National headline this special event, as they tour in support of their next album, slated for release in late May. Currently based in Brooklyn, but with roots in Ohio, the National have a cathartic power, simultaneously raw and reflective, that connects deeply with their many fans. Their new release is expected to advance their rich sound, brilliant yet suffused in shadows and filled with deep musical hues. Check back for updates on the full roster of acts in late March.
This one day festival is presented by our partners at PromoWest Productions and proceeds from the show will benefit both the Wexner Center's programs and CD 102.5 for the Kids, the children's charity arm of local independent radio station CD 102.5 FM.
Fast-breaking Los Angeles–based art pop band Local Natives—whose recent CD Hummingbird was coproduced by Aaron Dessner of the National—delight fans with their intricate interplay and bright harmonies. Matthew E. White opens the evening with a set of songs infused with southern soul. His recent first album, Big Inner, earned high praised from Uncut: “Soulful debut is stunning introduction.… He’s made one of the great albums of modern Americana.”
