A cross-pollination of numerous influences, including cabaret, spaghetti Westerns, norteño, punk, and the immigrant dance music of Eastern Europe, Colorado-based quartet DeVotchKa, formed in Denver by multi-instrumentalists Nick Urata (vocals, guitar, trumpet), Tom Hagerman (violin, accordion), Jeanie Schroder (sousaphone, bass) and percussionist Shawn King, emerged as unlikely indie heroes in the mid-2000s infusing modern indie music with a global flavor.

They found widespread success in 2006 with their Grammy-nominated soundtrack to the hit indie film Little Miss Sunshine. Signing with revered indie, Anti-, the band delivered A Mad and Faithful Telling in early 2008, reaching the number nine slot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. A lengthy world tour followed, including stops at major festivals like Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Bumbershoot. After doing more soundtrack work, this time for the 2009 comedy I Love You Phillip Morris, the group returned to the studio for 2011’s moody and triumphant 100 Lovers. Embarking on another world tour, they collaborated with the Colorado Symphony on the 2012 concert album Live with the Colorado Symphony. Over the next several years, Urata became increasingly involved in his own film composition career, scoring movies like Crazy Stupid Love, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Paddington, and the Netflix series A Series of Unfortunate Events. Meanwhile, the band regrouped for a lengthy recording session, eventually returning in 2018 with their sixth album, This Night Falls Forever, this time via Concord Records.

      This event is going to be so fun! Their music soothes my soul!

  2. Sonya D on January 29, 2024 at 4:33 pm

    Ahh, my oh my. “How it ends,” is the song my soul sings to the universe, with my eyes closed and heart open. Nostalgia and love, this song has held my hand for a while now. It would be a dream to hear it performed live.

  3. Tedi on January 30, 2024 at 12:06 pm

    DeVotchKa has been a favorite of mine since hearing the soundtrack of Little Miss Sunshine in 2006 (I was 15) I’m about to turn 33 in February and it would be such a full circle moment to see them in concert for the first time at 33.

  4. Rachel on January 30, 2024 at 12:26 pm

    As a cellist, I’ve been hearing about this group for years but never seen them. Hope you pick me!

  5. Cath on January 30, 2024 at 1:22 pm

  15. Aaron on February 2, 2024 at 10:42 am

    Would love to see DeVotchKa again! I feel like it’s been almost 20 years since I last saw them back in CO. Would be a great reunion for me and my partner!

  16. rmh on February 2, 2024 at 11:31 am

    Love them! Pick me.

  17. Leigh on February 2, 2024 at 11:47 am

    This was one of my favorite albums! I’d love to go!!

  18. Jen Forti on February 2, 2024 at 4:47 pm

    How It Ends is one of my favorite songs and have listened it on while descending on my bicycle down Mt Tabor. So magical! I love them and would love to be picked!!

  19. Marianne Silva on February 3, 2024 at 1:45 pm

    This would be a dream for me to go! Live this band!

  20. Melanie Jenkinson on February 5, 2024 at 12:05 pm

    DeVotchKa is the best and I would LOVE to see them again (saw them before Covid in Portland). I just think the music is haunting in the absolute best way. As a graphic designer, I entered a poster design contest for their Mishawaka Amphitheater show in 2010. I got a lovely email that they went with another design, but that I made it a hard decision ♥. So kind! I still have the art on my online portfolio.

  21. Ananda on February 5, 2024 at 2:33 pm

    I grew up in Colorado listening to DeVotchKa and was inspired to pick up the accordion as a result. It would be so wonderful to see them again after all this time!

  22. Peter on February 5, 2024 at 9:06 pm

    Yes please!

  23. Deena on February 6, 2024 at 3:09 pm

    How fun- would love to see both of these bands! Thanks for considering.

  24. Peter Stewart on February 6, 2024 at 3:22 pm

    Devotchka a legendary sound that picks your lazy butt up and gets inside your smiling heart! Let me experience the lovely one more time!

  25. Suzanne on February 6, 2024 at 4:24 pm

    Would love to see them! Love their sound.

  26. Kara on February 6, 2024 at 5:00 pm

    I love to dance around my room to DeVotchKa!!! What a fun show, I’d love to go! Thanks in advance.

  27. S. on February 6, 2024 at 6:01 pm

    Always wanted to see them live. Actually had tickets to see them until that pesky pandemic happened. This time I’ll be masked and ready.

  28. Summer O on February 7, 2024 at 6:55 pm

    Devotchka’s music has soundtracked my life since 2003, when my friends and I used to drive 6 hours from Albuquerque to Denver to see their shows. I’d love to take my partner and show him how beautiful they are.

  29. Klavdia on February 8, 2024 at 2:39 pm

    This DeVotchka-Девочка (in Slavic it’s a girl) needs to see them and dance. So much stress recently, need night out. Please pick me

  30. Mercedes Morales on February 9, 2024 at 2:53 pm

    I love Devotchka! I would love to take my fiance to this show so we can listen to their music live together.

  31. Richard Potts on February 11, 2024 at 11:44 am

    Yes, please!

  32. Keli on February 15, 2024 at 8:07 pm

    I haven’t seen DeVotchka since 2008 and I would love to see them now
