South by Southwest 2009: Keep Austin Loud

Devo, Austin Music Hall
Yes, Devo is still around and still booking shows. They broke out the red plastic helmets as they whipped Austin Music Hall into shape and basked in their new-wave glory. With a huge LED screen behind them, they blasted the audience, both sonically and visually.
