Coachella

A rising Denver band, DeVotchKa, walked off the stage before the end of its performance Saturday at the Coachella music festival in Southern California, one of the nation's largest independent music festivals. The four-member band was playing in 110-degree desert heat when Jeanie Schroder, who plays the standup bass and sousaphone, dropped her metal instrument and walked off the stage.

"She was holding a hot piece of metal in the afternoon sun and said, 'I can't do it, I'm dizzy and I'm done,' " said Rob Thomas, band manager. She did not receive medical attention. Other band members followed her. [Denver Post]

Devotchka's next NYC show is May 20th at Terminal 5 (an indoor venue). Tickets are still on sale. More tour dates here. More pictures below...
