A sign that good things come to those who wait, patiently, seminal American techno-punk band DEVO has annunced that they will be headlining the BMI showcase at SXSW, according to a press release fresh on my desk this morning.
"On Friday, March 20, performing right society BMI will partner with SXSW to present new wave progenitors Devo at Austin Music Hall". To read the press release go to to our Press Release Center
I'm a HUGE DEVO fan going back to their original SNL appearance and that kind of makes SXSW for me. I think I may still even have a rubber yellow suit in one of my closets, but alas the flower pot is long gone.
Now that the first headliner has announced, let the SXSW floodgates open!
