Devo at The Wiltern – 06’29’14

At the end of June I went to check out Devo at The Wiltern. I wasn’t sure what to expect since the last time I saw them 4 of their original band members were still alive.  Now, only 3 remain after the sudden death of founding member Bob Casale back in February.  Members of the press were invited to be present only for the first 3 songs.  After that we were politely escorted out. During those 3 songs Devo sat on stools which was certainly odd in comparison to the electrifying vibe that the audience is used to getting from them. They wore HARDCORE tees created after this tour, they were nice and all but they were not the industrial, futuristic suits we have been spoiled to see.  Although the band sounded great, the vibe was unusual. Objectively, I can’t say much about their performance as in the time press was in, there was not much action happening. However the fans are loyal and the Devo energy dome hats were  certainly present.  For a few more photos please visit FARAHSTOP, the music photography archive.
