october has been a big month for me and my devendra banhart crush… my photos from his space 1520 show were in PRINT in the oct. 2009 issue of filter, and then i caught his cd release show at the historic madame wong’s in chinatown on thursday.
lucky me. lucky me. and i so know it. while i rarely feel star-stuck, there are a few exceptions, and devendra is one of ’em.
i melted when he played “carmencita,” and “16th & valencia roxy music” off his new release is definitely in my top 10 for 2009.
now he’s off to europe for the rest of the year. big sigh.
