SXSW - DeVotchKa

SXWS - aka - 'south by'.

damn - it's an explosion of music. it's coming from everywhere. i don't know that i've ever seen/heard anything like it before. bands playing on street corners and shit - kinda crazy.

so, DeVotchKa (wiki) have a funky name - and I've seen their name travel in respectable indie circles. and tonight some dude told me to go check them out, even though it'd be sold out - he said, "there will be hoards of people outside, so you won't be alone". so, i went - it was pretty legit, if a bit difficult to hear - too far away.

they're definitely worth listening to, especially if you want something different. made me think 'greek' and 'arabian' and it would definitely be a good time if you could watch them all playing their funky instruments live and up close. can't say it's the type of stuff i'd buy, though.
