New wave legends Devo, had to cancel their 2010 Fun Fun Fun Fest performance due to one of the Bobs (Mothersbaugh) slicing his hand open leaving him unable to play guitar.While sources tell us that the band did consider using a replacement guitarist, they ultimately did not. Today Austin based promotion company and Fun Fun Fun Fest organizers Transmission Entertainment announced that Devo will be making it up to Austinites by not letting Bob touch anything sharp until after April so they can perform at Moody Theater, home of the new ACL Live, on March 27.
Opening for the new wave legends will be Austin’s own experimental indie group, The Octopus Project. Tickets are $37.50 and can be purchased at www.acl-live.com, in store at Waterloo Records, or charge by phone at 877-435-9849. VIP tickets are also available and include mezzanine level seating and a meet and greet with Devo. These tickets will be available on Thursday at 10am on a very limited basis.
