Dust off your energy dome hats and radiation suits — Devo is back! On Saturday at 8 pm, the seminal New Wave band will be honored with “The Super Thing: NYC Goes DEVO,” a night of art, live music and costumes at Williamsburg arts fortress 3rd Ward.
“It’s a very exciting show,” said curator Alison Levy. “I love the band. They are underrated and misunderstood, [just like] a lot of artwork which is clever and political. The band’s compelling aesthetic is one of the most amazing, complete art projects ever made.”
The show will feature work from local artists like Bedford-Stuyvesant’s Wayne Coe as well as new art from former Devo frontman Mark Mothersbaugh (center). The celebration will also feature an interactive talk with Mothersbaugh.
“The Super Thing: NYC Goes DEVO” runs May 10 through June 1 at 3rd Ward (195 Morgan Ave. at Stagg Street in Williamsburg). Admission is free. For information, call (718) 715-4961 or visit www.3rdward.com.
