Wielding a festival resume that includes Bonnaroo, Coachella and Lollapalooza, Grammy-nominated Denver-based quartet Devotchka will play a show on the Western Slope at 8 p.m. Friday, July 19, at Mesa Theater, 538 Main St.
Devotchka formed in the mid-2000s and comprises multi-instrumentalists Nick Urata (vocals, guitar, trumpet), Tom Hagerman (violin, accordion), Jeanie Schroder (sousaphone, bass) and percussionist Shawn King. Their sound is a "cross-pollination of numerous influences, including cabaret, spaghetti Westerns, norteño, punk, and the immigrant dance music of Eastern Europe," a news release said.
The quartet "found widespread success in 2006 with their Grammy-nominated soundtrack to the hit indie film 'Little Miss Sunshine,' and later signed with Anti Records and released "A Mad and Faithful Telling" in 2008. That album peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and launched a world tour that included major festivals Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Bumbershoot.
Devotchka generated soundtrack work for the 2009 comedy film, "I Love You Phillip Morris," then returned to the studio to record "100 Lovers," release in 2011. Another world tour followed as well as a collaboration with the Colorado Symphony on the 2012 concert album, "Live with the Colorado Symphony." Devotchka's sixth album, "This Night Falls Forever," was release on Concord Records in 2018.
Tickets to the Mesa Theater show are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the show. Call 773-1775 or visit mesatheater.com for information.
