gypsy steampunk style

while most of the lucky world is either on spring break or at sxsw, i'm stuck in a 7-day work week. ho hum. the silver lining to that cloud is that tonight is the devotchka show at the granada theater!

devotchka is generally billed as indie folk rock infused with gypsy-punk soul, which translates to accordions, violins, and tubas alongside the traditional guitar, bass, and drums. i thought it would be fun to imagine what i would wear to a devotchka concert if they were playing out of a brightly painted caravan in a field in victorian england. that's not too specific, is it?

enjoy - i'll be back tomorrow with videos to share!

  1. I'm neither on Spring Break or at SXSW, even though I live in Austin and work in education. Darn it all.

    Lovely treasury. I should spend the time to make one of these some day; it looks like fun!

  2. oh, man, you got a bum deal! what do you do in education? it took me almost a year to make my first treasury - i'm too indecisive!

  3. Well, I work for an association. I shouldn't complain too much; we do get the two weeks off at Christmas. :)

  4. indeed! :) it's usually a six-day stretch at the most, but poor planning (and my mandatory city leadership board meeting) led to this rarity. only three more days left!

  5. Wow Great collection, and Devotchka is one of my all time favorite bands! Thank you so much for including me in this collection!

    I hope you had a great time at the show!
