Let’s pop the top off of the time capsule this week and check out a dynamic and eclectic show featuring two Denver-based musical guests. Headlining the show is the well-established band DeVotchKa and supporting them is neophyte singer-songwriter Kyle Emerson. Nick also has a sit down with Sister Edna Lonergan to discuss how she pioneered the combination of adult daycare with child daycare.
That’s all this week on eTown!
DeVotchKa is an American four-piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble. They take their name from the Russian word devochka (девочка), meaning “girl”.
