Another week of work has come and gone, it’s time to unwind. Stealing the show this weekend in Fort Collins is Grammy nominated band Devotchka. Their unmistakable sound has been featured at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella in the past. They’ll be rocking The Mish tonight at 8. Other things going down this weekend are a tree climbing competition, a food truck rally, and a unique metal show. More information below!
Devotchka @ The Mishawaka
When: Friday, July 19
A genre of music that’s hard to put a finger on, but easy to recognize when you hear it. Devotchka has been just about everywhere around the globe and have played alongside bands Muse, Radiohead, The Silversun Pickups, and several more. Ringleader and frontman, Nick Urstan, wrote the soundtrack for hit movies Little Miss Sunshine and Crazy, Stupid, Love. Pretty cool that they’re going to be performing right on the Poudre.
