Talking Heads vs. Devo on Nov 5 at El Rio


We’re teaming up with our friends Suburban Robots to bring you the greatest post-punk tribute night ever: Talking Heads vs. Devo.

North American Scum (as Talking Heads) and Suburban Robots (as Devo) are heading to the El Rio to bring you a night of high energy post-punk action. From Whip It to Psycho Killer and everything in between, the two bands will make you dance like it’s the late 70s / early 80s all over again. Relive the years between punk and before New Wave when two bands dropped music that was completely different from what the rest of the world was doing at that time.
