Can’t get no satisfaction? Yes I can!
Devo, live at the State Fair, this past Wednesday night (4 August). Finally got to see them play.
The plugging of the new album was done first, and the rest of the show was the Devo I grew up on. It was pretty much all there — the only big song I can think of that they didn’t do was their cover of Coal Mine.
Were they good? Oh yes. You wouldn’t know they’d had several layoffs since they first hit it big in the late 70s/early 80s. Great stage show; I’m not used to bands with stage shows!
If they’re coming to your area and you *ever* liked Devo, go.
