Video of the Day: DeVotchKa

Share this post

If you’re in D.C. or New York over the next nights, you have the chance to check out Denver’s DeVotchKa on a mini tour. They’re playing with a string section, a combination that promises to be memorable. Their music, after all, is uniquely suited to orchestral arrangements and a fuller exposition of their already unique sound.  Here’s a live track from a 2008 performance at Red Rocks, a venue they just played before heading east for this latest batch of shows.

Behrnsie has a love for music that dare not speak its name. He attends many shows and can often be found counting out the beats for no discernible reason. He played alto saxophone in his middle school jazz band, where he was best known for infuriating his instructor when it was revealed that he played everything by ear, and could not in fact read music. He takes great pride that this is the same talent/affliction that got Tori Amos kicked out of the Peabody Academy. He does not live in his parents’ basement….except during the holidays.
