DeVotchka - 930 Club - March 22, 2011

Scrabble word of the day - Tissu

One of the highlights of a DeVotchka show is bassist Jeanie Schroder - for about half the show she belts out riffs on her backlit sousaphone.  The other extremely unique and amazing feature of a DeVotchka show is the aerial display of their tissu gymnasts, swinging and spinning high above the club stage.  Aside from these two features, the band offers a great replication of their signature Baltic/Greek/Mariachi album sounds.  Their show at the 930 club, while not flawless, was a great representation of their repertoire with equal parts 100 Lovers, A Mad and Faithful Telling, How It Ends and miscellaneous.  Also, epically, the band covered Neil Young.  Scorecard and approximate setlist to follow.
