Partly Cloudy With a Chance of Little Miss Sunshine

The giddy multicultural tones of DeVotchKa do nothing better than propelling a beat-up VW bus down the road toward destiny. A little girl's destiny, anyway. DeVotchKa's gypsy-indie sounds were first publicly traded after serving as the soundtrack to "Little Miss Sunshine." Much as Kimya Dawson became a big somebody after "Juno," DeVotchKa owes its sudden exposure to the whimsical adventures of a plucky movie gal. To be fair, the Denver-born band broke out at 2006's Bonnaroo, mingling the native music of the wandering peoples of the world with that of America's own road sound: folk. DeVotchKa plays Toad's Place Thursday, May 15, at 7 p.m., with freak folkie Basia Bulat and local country outfit The Hotdamns. $15-$18. 648-TOAD or www.toadsplacerva.com.
