On the Road with DeVotchKa: Munich and Brussels

update and photos by Shawn King

Shows have been going really well over here after a few hang ups. Jeanie scored a flute, and Nick found the only other dude in Zurich who could replace a busted Moog theremin.

We played in a strip mall in Munich on a lazy Sunday.

In Brussels, we opened for Primus and rapped with Les and the gang about red wine and iPhone games.

If you’re going to Belgium, you must go visit Goupil le Fol and have a drink — he doesn’t care for Americans but I charmed him with some broken French anyhow.

Our Denver pal Gregory Alan Isakov opened for us in Nijmegen and Amsterdam; so glad to see him out here — the duo sounded beautiful & we got to hang more out here than we would’ve back in Denver

In a few minutes, we leave for Glastonbury and Iā€™m gonna go bananas for Morrisey and Battles. Everyone speaks of the mud like a spectre, so wish us luck.
