« Evan Dando, Juliana Hatfield & Lady Lamb playing Brooklyn (where everyone thinks Prince will be tonight) | The Kills releasing 'Blood Pressures', touring w/ Cold Cave & the Entrance Band (2011 dates) »
Devotchka at Public Assembly as part of the BV Day Party (more by Chris Gersbeck)
After recent shows during the uber-hectic CMJ, in the tiny Bowery Electric, and even under the big top, Devotchka has settled down from playing odd NYC shows and signed up for a tour and a plain ol' pair of NYC dates with Mariachi el Bronx at Highline Ballroom on March 23rd and 24th. Tickets for both shows, and other dates of the burgeoning tour, are currently on fan presale. The NYC shows (23rd here, 24th here) go on general sale Friday (1/21) at noon. All dates (which look like they include SXSW as well) are below.
Devotchka is currently streaming a new track "Contrabanda" at Soundcloud from their upcoming LP 100 Lovers. It's also available for purchase on an ANTI- sampler available via iTunes. 100 Lovers is due on February 15th and the band will celebrate with an unusual Record Release party in Denver, CO on 2/12 that includes a hotel package if you wish:
Please join DeVotchKa for another Valentine's show you won't soon forget... Ticket package includes 2 tickets to the show, a commemorative screen print poster, plus accommodations for Saturday, February 12, 2011, at the Curtis Hotel in downtown Denver. Tickets and poster will be waiting for guests at the hotel upon check-in. Once you order the package, DeVotchKa Music will take care of booking and will contact you with further information.More details on that special Devotchka show can be found at their site. Full tracklisting for 100 Lovers is below.
"Funky, cool, and playful, the Curtis--a Doubletree Hotel--is a unique boutique hotel located in downtown Denver. The 336-room, 'pop culture' themed Curtis features interactive video art and themed floors, along with state-of-the-art fitness center, complimentary wireless Internet, and The Corner Office Restaurant + Martini Bar."
Mariachi El Bronx have been involved in some new material as well, as part of Armistice with Beatrice Martin (Coeur de pirate) and Jay Malinowski (Bedouin Soundclash). Look for the new EP in the near future, but until then stream new track "Mission Bells".
All tour dates and some video is below.
