you only love me when i'm leaving
okay, you guys, please direct your attention here to see if devotchka is coming to a town near you. it is seriously in your best interest to go if they are! my only other devotchka experiences before last night's show were acl 2007 (it was so insanely hot) and sxsw 2008 (i saw them in a parking lot at 7th and red river at 2 in the afternoon). i was really excited about finally seeing them play a real set, at a real venue (even though i hate la zona rosa). let me tell you, it was everything i hoped it would be and more. they're such an incredible group of musicians. the music is so intense and dramatic, it's like nothing i've ever seen before. and i'm not going to lie, i definitely teared up a time or two. whatevs! haha! anyway, i just wanted to share a little bit of my experience with y'all in hopes that you'll go see them too.
