Today, according to history’s most credible doomsday theorists, the Mayans, is the end of the world. Dec. 21, 2012 is the day that the Mayan calendar ends, which obviously means the ancient civilization predicted the end of the world, and didn’t just eventually find it pointless to make a calendar that went like 5,000 years into the future.
DeVotchKa and the Colorado Symphony Orchestra may have seemed like an unlikely musical match just a year ago, but their indie-meets-institution collaboration produced two solid concerts in 2012, one at Boettcher Concert Hall last February and another at Red Rocks in September. Next up: The album “DeVotchKa Live with the Colorado Symphony” due Tuesday.
