DeVotchKa: interview on "An Aquarium Drunkard"

An Aquarium Drunkard has an interview with DeVotchKa:

We have squeezed a lifetime of experiences into this year. We got invited to play exotic faraway places like Moscow and Istanbul , and people actually knew the words to our songs. In the process we have played some very large festivals, these things can be nerve racking for a band because they just sort of shove you on stage in front of all these people with no sound check, with a band like ours, dynamics are a big part of our tunes and on a big outdoor stage those nuances go out the window, so we just go back to our days of play shitholes with one microphone and play as hard as we can. The great thing about these big festivals is the energy of the crowd lifts the players up to new levels.
