For the January edition of WYCE at Wealthy, we present "Buster In Blue", a screening of the classic Buster Keaton silent film "The General", accompanied LIVE by an original score from local band Blue Dahlia.

The show begins at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, January 14th. Tickets are $4 in advance, $8 the day of the show and are available by visiting wyce.org or the Wealthy Theatre Box Office.

a note about this track

DeVotchKa is a four piece multi-instrumental and vocal ensemble that fuses Romani, Greek, Slavic, Bolero, Mariachi (and many more styles) music with American punk and folk roots. They take their name from Anthony Burgess' Nadsat word for "young girl," which is itself derived from the Russian word (девочка) of the same meaning. Based in Denver, Colorado, the quartet is made up of Nick Urata, who sings and plays theremin, guitar, bouzouki, piano, and trumpet; Tom Hagerman, who plays violin, accordion, and piano; Jeanie Schroder, who sings and plays sousaphone and double bass; and Shawn King, who plays percussion and trumpet.
