Austin, TX -- Singer Nick Urata founded DeVotchKa nine years ago with the idea of mixing together the music of east and west. He did not found it with the hopes of selling music to McDonald's. The band turned down a request to use one of their songs in the fast-food giant's commercials.
With their sixth new CD A Mad and Faithful Telling, DeVotchKa is poised to capitalize on the popularity they earned by being featured on the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack.
Songs performed: "Transliterator," "We're Leaving," and "Queen of the Surface Streets"
