Devotchka Goes Mainstream, Sort Of

My secret favorite band, Devotchka, have gotten some national attention. They were the subject of an NPR album review this evening on All Things Considered.. The reviewer talked up the band's classical training and their great live performances, and (oh woe is me) generally ruined it for the indier-than-thou set. You know, folks like me who remember them from way back in 2004.

Honestly, I still can't believe they haven't signed a huge contract yet, and I am delighted that they're not just my little secret anymore. If you want to soothe your Gypsy soul on the 25th, book your tickets to the Crocodile Cafe now. I may have to throw some elbows through the crowd when I try to get a beer.
