Sound Unseen is proud to present the MN PREMIERE of “HARDCORE DEVO LIVE” by director Keirda Bahruth at the Trylon microcinema.
No matter how messy, beginnings are exciting. Especially when what happens next endures the test of time. For Devo the beginning happened in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio. The songs they wrote were raw and unfiltered with no commercial intent. They called it Hardcore Devo.
In the summer of 2014, Devo performed 10 shows playing the seminal, experimental songs they created between 1974 and 1977. They have not played most of these songs that pre-dated any fame or record contracts since that time.
“Hardcore Devo Live!”, captures these ground breaking artists performing the songs that started it all. It’s Devo unmasked, coming face to face with their past and paying tribute to their fallen brother, Bob Casale. It’s their “thank you” to everyone who believed in them before it was safe to be Devo.
