TONIGHT: Devotchka at Plush
I'm going to the Devotchka show tonight at Plush. They are supposed to go on at 10:45pm. I should be there a little after 10pm.

For those of you who don't know Devotchka, they make great music that fuses a wide variety of genres. They also did much of the soundtrack for the film Little Miss Sunshine.

I will be at work by then and all night, but I do hope to see them eventually. Enjoy!

It was too crowded to enjoy properly. At least for someone who arrived as late as I did. Sadly. . .

See you there!

I got there around 10:30pm, when it was already absurdly crowded. I didn't see you, though. Were you there?

I was there. It was absurdly crowded - so much more so than any other show I've been to at Plush. I kept scanning the room for you. I was concerned that maybe the show had been sold out by the time you got there. I got there just early enough to get reasonably settled in the center of the room and had a really great time. I'm sorry I missed you.

It was awful in the back. I eventually left to sit at the bar. The problem with standing by the merch table is that the sound gets muffled to a whisper by the overhang and intervening bodies. If I were more aggressive, I would have pushed my way forward. But I hate being that sort of guy. It's sad, because I really like the band and would have liked it up closer. As it was, though, it was by far my worst experience at Plush. I better get there early for Malkmus!

I'm so sorry to hear this. I hate being that sort of guy too. If I had known you were back there I would have joined you. I had a great time up front but I would have preferred to hang with you.

I'm not even sure you could have made it back! It was so crowded. Sufjan Stevens was half-empty by that standard.

Anyway, we should get together again sometime. Malkmus in January, obviously.

I got there early (w00t Eric Bachmann) and planted myself in front of the tubaist with my two friends. We got shoved around A LOT and the purse of the obnoxious girl who was standing behind me was more intimate with certain bits of my anatomy than some of my lovers have been.

It was a brilliant show, but I kind of think their days of being able to play Plush and Congress are over. I hope they'll end up at the Rialto next time.

I would have liked it had I been closer. I was way back by the merch table and it was packed there. As I noted in another comment, the sound back there is extremely muffled. But I couldn't get there sooner so I guess the lesson is not to go if I can't get there earlier than that. Wish I'd seen you!
