The Killed In Action saga can’t be covered entirely today.
Killed in Action was an Ohio thrash band who developed friendships while basically slaying all in a fun manner.. KIA also worked with PRZM’s Hip Hop community to make some unique events.
For now we will leave it at above is a photo of Grill Em All’s Ryan Harkins pretending to sniff his band’s name in fake drugs. The drugs were a joke which was also a tribute to debauchery in rock music.

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.
