For years DeVotchKa has been putting on legendary performances for Halloween. Complete with full costumes and elaborate set designs, the Halloween shows are often the most talked about performances of the year. Joining the band will be the Slavic Sisters, performing their incredible aerial act above the band.
For more than a decade DeVotchKa has been melting its sweeping influences into an authentic and totally original blend of rock ‘n roll. DeVotchKa’s first big break happened when KCRW introduced LA listeners to DeVotchKa on Morning Becomes Eclectic. The directors of “Little Miss Sunshine” happened to be listening this fateful day, loved what they heard, and hired the band to write the score for their film. A critical and box office smash, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa's soundtrack, a Grammy. The little band from Denver was suddenly known all across the nation, playing large venues and major music festivals, including Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. The love spread to Europe, which has become a yearly destination for the band.
Coming off of a string of festival dates (Bunbury Music Festival, Vancouver Folk Festival) and amphitheatre shows (Red Rocks Amphitheatre, The Hollywood Bowl) around the country, DeVotchKa takes the stage for two nights of special performances. Hear DeVotchKa’s most iconic songs revisited in the intimate settings of The Gothic and Boulder Theatres.
