DeVotchKa is for lovers. So is Valentine's Day. An absolutely ideal pairing, the two have been making beautiful music together for years, and the former just announced its plans for the latter. This Valentine's Day, Nick Urata and company will bring their sultry sounds to the Mercury Cafe for a three-night run that kicks off on Thursday, February 13, and culminates with a show on Saturday, February 15. Tickets for the shows are $32 and available now on the band's website.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
