DEVOtional 2023 will be here SOON! 9/22 & 9/23!
This year's graphics celebrate DEVO's 50th anniversary, (Hence the gold Energy Domes & scooters) and also pay tribute to their SHOUT album! (DEVOtionals have typically celebrated an album per year in chronological order, and last year we used "Oh, No! It's DEVO" graphics). COME CELEBRATE WITH US!
Like last year, we're using the big ballroom at The Beachland for BOTH days of the event. For many years we used the smaller tavern room for Friday, and the large ballroom for Saturday, but now DEVOtional is a larger beast demanding more room.
We're happy to announce the first of our special guests this year: DJ LANCE ROCK of Yo Gabba Gabba! fame!
Lance will be talking about his work with DEVO on Yo Gabba Gabba!, as well as spinning some of his favorite 80's synth-pop records for us, so be ready for a HIGHLY DEVOLVED & AWESOME TIME!
We've also got some highly devolved bands confirmed - See list below. Full schedule TBA:
- Detention (from Akron, OH)
- Massive Hotdog Recall (from Kent, OH)
- Fight Milk (from Redmond, WA)
- Fantastic Plastics (from NYC)
- Johnny Spud (from North Dakota)
- Devoid (from Baltimore, MD)
Much more info will be announced in the near future (including more bands, more special guests, raffle prizes, etc), but for now we have TICKETS FOR SALE & the official DEVOtional 2023 EVENT T-SHIRT for pre-order, so grab yours now!
We had a SOLD OUT event last year for the 1st time ever and had to turn a few folks away at the door, which we felt horrible about, so get your tix now! Also, pre-ordering your event shirt is the best way to make sure you get the size you need.
Scroll down to see image of the highly devolved DEVOtional 2023 event T-Shirt.
See you in O-hi-o soon!
