Yes, brace yourselves…the rockclub Northern Lights (Clifton Park, NY ) will have their venue honored with the presence of the legendary group DEVO on July 31, 2010. I’m sure this show will be sold out in no time and promises to be a fun time listening to DEVO music past and present.
DEVO is touring in support of their new album Something For Everyone which is their first album in 20 years. Although here at HiFi Central we have not had the pleasure to listen to it yet, there is an good blog review of the album at this link, so check it out if you are interested.
In 2009, prior to the Something For Everyone release, the band was doing 2-night shows where they played Are We Not Men? (night 1) and Freedom Of Choice (night 2) in their entirety; I’m curious what they will do with this tour, I’m sure it will be a culmination of all three albums so clearly there will be a little bit of everything for everyone at this show. I’ve read past reviews of their shows and nearly everyone was happy with the performance and selection of songs they choose to play, oddly one reviewer was shocked that they never played their identifiable hit Whip It, is this possible? I can’t imagine a DEVO show without this classic, can you?
I’m not sure how much tickets are, but from past experience they usually run around $45, which is a bit steep for DEVO. Get your tickets as soon as they go on sale, I’m sure they will sell out quickly!
