If you're a fan of indie music or film Devotchka is a band that needs no introduction. Headed up by front man Nick Urata and his soaring vocals, this group from Denver who got their start playing in burlesque shows found "instant" fame in 2006 when the directors of indie hit Little Miss Sunshine tapped the group to score the soundtrack to that film.
On record the quartet consistently delivers the goods, with songs like "How It Ends," "We're Leaving,", "The Clockwise Witness" - the list goes on and on. But where they really shine is live where elements of Gypsy folk, punk and even a little vaudeville all come together in an delicious stew of musicianship and entertainment that is as unique as it is exhilarating.
