Posted on my Facebook wall yesterday


If you believe in falling in love, you should go to the DeVotchka valentine show in your area.

that is all.

So I don't know how you say no to that. I'm hoping to talk some unsuspecting friends into making the trek to Denver with me but even if I can't, I'll be there. Because one summer I listened to this song starting from when I was pretty sure my heart was about to get broken until it was all healed up.

I came up with a rule about five years ago that I would never, ever spend Valentine's Day feeling bad about being single. And I have to say-ever since I've really enjoyed it. Just because I'm not in love it certainly doesn't mean there isn't a somewhat obscene amount of love in my life-especially for bands who manage to use accordions successfully.

The first time I went to a DeVotchKa concert, I was there alone. By the end of the show I was slow dancing with strangers.

His voice live is heartmending. Hearing "Queen of the Surface Streets" live is like falling in love.

I'm sorry, I have already given you too many superlatives.
