DeVotchKa coming to The Fillmore Auditorium

Special Guest TBA
Fillmore Auditorium
Saturday, February 14 – Valentine’s Day
Showtime 8:00 pm / Doors 7:00 pm

For more than a decade DeVotchKa has been melting its sweeping influences into an authentic and totally original blend of rock ‘n roll. DeVotchKa’s first big break happened when KCRW introduced LA listeners to DeVotchKa on Morning Becomes Eclectic. The directors of “Little Miss Sunshine” happened to be listening this fateful day, loved what they heard, and hired the band to write the score for their film. A critical and box office smash, the film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and, for DeVotchKa's soundtrack, a Grammy.  The little band from Denver was suddenly known all across the nation, playing large venues and major music festivals, including Coachella, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. The love spread to Europe, which has become a yearly destination for the band.

Since Little Miss Sunshine, front man Nick Urata has composed the scores for countless films including Crazy Stupid Love (Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore), Ruby Sparks (Paul Dano, Zoe Kazan, Annette Bening) and The Joneses (David Duchovny, Demi Moore, Gary Cole). Most recently, Urata composed the original music score for the highly anticipated film Paddington Bear, based on the popular children's books by Michael Bond. Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins and Nicole Kidman, the movie is slated for release January 16 of 2015.

Coming off of a sold out performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with the Colorado Symphony this past summer, DeVotchKa takes the stage at the Fillmore Auditorium for a special Valentine’s Day performance.

New Wine Bar coming to East Colfax

Tulper's Watch Repair on East Colfax is being transformed into a wine bar called Brik on York. You can read more about the new establishment here: http://diningout.com/…/2014/12/05/work-in-progress-brik-on…/
Here's what the article has to say about how the new space will honor this historic Colfax address: "The space is planned to bridge the gap between Old World and New World, paying homage to its former life as a movie theatre and then Tulper’s. The exposed brick will remain as well as the original sign from the turn of the century York Movie Theatre." (courtesy Colfax Jack)
