Devo plays a very rare show Saturday June 21 in St. Charles

This Saturday at The Arcada Theatre is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see DEVO perform the legendary, experimental music the band created between 1974-1977 in Akron Ohio.  The tour, Hardcore DEVO Live, is dedicated to the memory of Robert Casale, (A.K.A. Bob 2), one of the 5 original Devo band members who is now touring the universe.  VIP ticket admission will allow you to meet the band and exclusively view and/or purchase rare, limited edition photo prints by noted photographers shot during the band's pre-label days. A portion of all proceeds from the tour will go to Bob Casale's family.

This early DEVO material was recently presented on their "Hardcore DEVO" re-issued vinyl & CD last year.  This is the first time in 30 years that some of these songs will be performed live.

I had the pleasure of speaking with DEVO founding member Gerald Casale (brother of the late Bob 2) about this show.  It's certainly going to be jaw dropping, listen as he describes why:
