HARDCORE DEVO LIVE! 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 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 let guests meet the band and exclusively view / 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 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!

Here's one of our favorite tunes from their first album, "Maraschino". We love it only partly because it reminds us of "Mendocino" by Sir Douglas Quintet. The name, not the song.
JC. SATÁN is spreading their evil psych-pop virus in the U.S.A for the first time since forming in 2009 in Bordeaux, France. Formed from the ashes of MEATARDS and studying the art of ungodly racket making with Looch Vibrato (of Slovenly label mates MAGNETIX), JC. SATÁN has released two incredibly bizarre and crunching, yet ethereal, albums for Slovenly, and a handful of 7"s that transcend all "garage rock" expectations and prejudices. Do not miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to see them doing what the demonic European rock'n'roll contingent have been privy to for so long.
Everyone's favorite banana puddin'-eatin' North Carolinians, Southern Culture on the Skids, have a whole mess a' tour dates coming up, starting in their home town of Chapel Hill, NC on March 14th before they had to Houston and then Austin for SXSW, followed by the midwest, south, and then California.
The first show is part of a UNC celebration of 30 years (!!) of SCOTS which sounds like something we would never, ever miss if we lived in Chapel Hill. Here's what the band has to say about it:
Hey Folks, this is pretty dang COOL!! The Southern Folklife Collection at UNC (that's the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, for folks not from around these parts) has gathered up a Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame style collection of SCOTS memorabilia, including the kustom pin-striped La-Z-Boy recliner that graces the cover of the "Plastic Seat Sweat" album, tons of photos from the early days of SCOTS, guitars, basses, drumheads, videos, and other rarities and they've put together an exhibit they're calling "Lard Have Mercy! 30 Years of Southern Culture On The Skids". We'll be playing opening night at the Historic Playmakers Theater on campus in conjunction with the exhibit and the annual conference of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music. The show is free, but ticketed as space is limited.
