Bob Casale of Devo died at the age of 61 last Monday.
It made me feel grateful of the time Dkline, Todd and I drove up from Columbus to Akron see Devo, Chrissie Hynde, and The Black Keys play an Obama/Biden Rally at the Civic Theater.
It was pretty amazing evening. If you are familiar with TBK sense of humor than you can see the Devo in them. So it was cool in itself that the Keys opened for Devo.
Devo was amazing. They played all the hits, and also interwined commentary about how Devoution was real. Devo basically was saying Obama/Biden would be method to combat how bad things had gotten during the Bush Regime.
You can watch the above video and see some of what Devo had to say. Obama wasn’t there. But it was still a pretty special evening. Seeing that Mr. Casale died last Monday, and Alan Meyers died in 2013; I feel pretty fortunate that I got to see the Ohio legends.
After the jump you can look at an instagram picture Patrick Carney posted of an autograph Bob Casale gave him after the show and also the end jam session with Devo, Chrissie Hynde and the Black Keys.

So Cam’ron is doing an Ep on Fool’s Gold called Federal Reserve.
1.Is there a Cam’ron/El-P song?
2.What wacky-ass sample is Party Supplies gonna have Cam rapping over? Party Supplies co-produced this joint but didn’t really go “Horse and Carriage.”
3. Please do not have Cam rap over dubstep. I know Araabmusik could appear but hopefully it’s on some “I Used to Get It in Ohio” steez.
Columbus recording artists Connections filmed their newest video for “That’s All” at the Columbus Museum of Art. “That’s All” will be on Connections upcoming 5 Imaginary Boys EP which will be released on Hozac Record
“That’s All” was put together by Jeff Sims and Susie Underwood.
The video is a collage of sorts with images laying over people holding lyric sheets. I am impressed by the guy in the silver mask and camo coat. He has a MF Doom vibe.
