DeVotchKa Play Twist & Shout

After standing outside an hour in the blustery cold of a March early evening in Denver, DeVotchKa let us in to the warmth of their new album.   Pulling mostly from A Mad & Faithful Telling (released today), the performance to its hometown fans at Twist & Shoutthe best record store in the country–was pretty special.  Even if you’re not aware, you’ve likely heard several songs by DeVotchKa. Enjoy some very close pictures (sadly, I only had my phone camera, and it’s not like Brian’s)!  Note the 3/4 empty wine bottle…

    This is what MiS needs more of-EXCLUSIVITY. Nice work, JT. Twist and Shout is the best? I’ve been and Amoeba impressed me more, man.

    I’ve been to Amoeba too. I was a bit disappointed. It’s larger, yes (I mean, L.A. vs. Denver!). For its size, T&S has won the retailer of the year 6-7 times–I was more or less referencing that declaraation. Grimey’s is right there too, but it’s much smaller, as you also know!

    My favorite record store ever is actually in Athens…but it closed awhile ago there and reopened in Atlanta just 2 days a week. Not sure if it’s larger, one would hope if it’s two days a week, since only a few people could enter it as it was before. Jsson and Lori have been there! It was basically in a closet of the 40 Watt Club!

    So, my rankings (in no particular order):

    Amoeba – Hollywood (large-sized)
    Twist & Shout – Denver (medium-sized)
    Grimey’s – Nashville (small-sized)
