Local favorites DeVotchKa returned to the CPR Performance Studio back in October as part of OpenAir's 2nd Birthday celebration.

In addition to playing a few songs, the band members talked to Keefer about the history of their famed Halloween show, and the death of Lou Reed and his influence on DeVotchKa's music. They pay tribute to the late icon with a rendition of the Velvet Underground classic "Venus in Furs."

Stream the interview and performance in its entirety above, and check out our previous live session with DeVotchKa.
