Devendra Banhart: She's Great!

Just wondering if any of you New Yorkers noticed the Virgin Megastore ad in this week's Village Voice (page 88) promoting Devendra Banhart's Union Square appearance.

The person who wrote the copy for the ad obviously had no idea who the hell Devendra Banhart is, as the copy constantly refers to him as a her!

Copy from the ad:

Come by and see Devendra Banhart perform tracks from her new album Cripple Crow. Devendra will be signing copies of the CD folling her performance.
There's also another Virgin Megastore ad on page 100 with similar copy.

It's nice to see that Virgin Mega makes it a point to familiarize themselves with their in-store acts.

I just thought this was entertaining enough to share with all. I don't have a scan, but I'll try to track something down for you guys!

EDIT: WFMU's blog has a blurb with a scan.
