Oh No,no Devo? That was the cry for many when we learned of the band’s cancellation of their Fun Fun Fun Fest performance due to a severe hand injury suffered by guitarist Bob Mothersbaugh. But, thanks to the fine folks at Transmission Entertainment, they make good with the fans and bring the band to Austin for a performance at the newly launched ACL Live Studio. Personally, I would have loved to see the band performing on the outdoor stage at Waterloo Park under the Austin sky, packed in tight with Devo fans both young and old, but if everything went they way that I wanted..it would be one messed up world.
Opening the show will be Austin’s own electronic beat beast, Octopus Project who had the privilege of playing with members of Devo at MoogFest 2010. There’s that chance that you might see the pioneers and the current on stage together again on Sunday night.
