*Note: The band DEVO has never performed at our fan event, and there are no plans for that to happen, but DEVO band members typically show up to speak & perform with other bands 95% of the time since we started way back in the year 2000.
|DEVOtional 2023 will be here SOON! 9/22 & 9/23!
We'll be LIVESTREAMING both days, Sept. 22 & 23, at Michael Pilmer (Devo-Obsesso)'s channel: YouTube.com/mpilmer. Don't Miss It!
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 two special guests this year: DJ LANCE ROCK of Yo Gabba Gabba! fame, and Del Jae of FUTURISMO Records, who has released more than a few DEVO albums in recent years!
Del will be talking about the recently released "Art DEVO" box set he released on Futurismo, and will be supplying the event with highly DEVOlved FREE DOOR PRIZES for the 1st 100 spuds through the door on Saturday! (Exactly what it is will remain a secret till then!)
Speaking of door prizes, Rhino Records, who recently announced the DEVO 50 Anniversary Box Set, is providing free DEVOtional 2023 tote bags to the first 100 spuds through the door on Saturday!
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! Also, as a special Post-DEVOtional Decompress Social, Lance will be DJ'ing on Sunday, Sept. 24th at SuperElectric Pinball Parlor in Cleveland! No cover! (Doors open at 12pm. DJ Lance set time TBA)
