2011-04-13devotchka @ le national oh wow, i just realized that i am really behind on my blogging.
at the end of last month, i went to the devotchka show with rox.
the opening band was b.e.t.a.l.o.v.e.r.s. their music was kind of folk/americana with a hint of jazz, so i initially thought they were american. when the singer started talking, i realized they were a local band.
this was my first time seeing devotchka play a full set. i hadn't listened to the new album yet, so i was glad they decided to play quite a few old song, including my favourites: "how it ends", "the clockwise witness", "the enemy guns". it was a nice evening.
no aerial silk performer this time. but they had a dancer with an umbrella perform during "100 other lovers", as show in this video i found on youtube:
from the angle, i think this was filmed by the girl standing next to us.
they ended up playing a 2.5+ hour show.
we were standing next to the stage, so after the show, rox was able to grab a copy of the setlist.
queen of the surface streets
the clockwise witness
the man from san sebastian
how it ends
all the sand in all the sea
i cried like a silly boy
100 other lovers
the enemy guns
