the Aquabats 2010 Tour!

Yes, it’s true The Aquabats are on tour and hopefully coming to a venue near you!  I saw these guys years ago in Boston and loved the show; fun surf rock with a corny stageshow and worth every penny.  With band members with names like MC Bat Commander, Crash McLarson, Eagle “Bones” Falconhawk, Jimmy The Robot, and Ricky Fitness you’ve got to expect it’s going to be at the very least entertaining, right?

They’ve been hiding out for a year or more not touring so I’m sure they will be full of energy on stage with each gig they will play.  I don’t see New York on their tour as of yet, but I’m hopeful.   If you have kids and have had a chance to watch the show Yo Gabba Gabba they’ve been on quite a bit. 

If you dig ska/surf rock bands like Los Straitjackets, you’ll like these guys too. If you get a chance to see these guys please do and tell us about it.  Here is the link of where they are currently touring for 2010, click here.

If you’ve seen them before, let us know what you have thought of their shows.

Devo Lives!

No, it is not a joke. DEVO is actually alive and well…and touring.  Having a 2-year old I have been entertained by Mark Mothersbaugh’s (lead singer of DEVO) cameo’s on Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba kids show, but never thought that DEVO was still alive and well.  Appearently DEVO is playing in New York City’s Irving Plaza tonight 11/21 and in Toronto on Monday and Tuesday, cool! 

DEVO has been playing the same city two nights in a row intentionally in order play both albums Are We Not Men?  and Freedom Of Choice each night in their entirety, what a killer idea!  Brace yourself Toronto, I’m sure it will be a great show.

11/23 & 11/24 Toronto, Canada – Pheonix Concert Center

Why don’t more bands do this?  Could you imagine if Rush played Hemispheres and 2112 night one and Moving Pictures and Counterparts night 2? Or Metallica playing Kill em’ All night and Black night night one, perhaps Justice for All and Ride The Lightning night two?  I think that DEVO might be on to something…eh?

I’m  happy to hear that DEVO still has a following since they were definitely a defining sound of the 1980’s when I was growing up.
