July 26
The Vogue

Once upon a time, in the 1970s, disco ruled the airwaves. Which meant that, when you went to a dance at your school, the majority of students stuck to the walls while a few Travolta-wannabees went out and did their thing. It was fun for the few, but a boring time for those along the wall.

Then came Devo, with songs like “Whip It” and a flipped-out cover of “Satisfaction.” And suddenly, skill didn’t matter. The dance floor welcomed those who could do no more than bounce around.

A problem came along, and Devo whipped it.

Details on the concert, which includes four of the five core members of the band, here.
