Devo visits the Center

Yesterday afternoon the Ohio Historical Center had several very special visitors.

The four original members of the band DEVO came to the Ohio Historical Center after a sound check at the State Fair to see the exhibit Q: Are We Not Men A: We Are Devo.   The exhibit features several items from the band’s history including an iconic energy dome helmet, yellow jump suit, and an anti-evolutionary pamphlet “Jocko Homo Heavenbound” that was the inspiration for the band’s de-evolutionary theory.

The exhibit will be up at the Ohio Historical Center through August 28, and can be viewed on the third floor lobby on Thursdays from 10 am to 7 pm or Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm.  For more information about the band and their tour schedule, visit
