Canadian dance band Shout Out Out Out Out spent their Halloween down in Asheville, North Carolina. The occasion was MoogFest where they played along with Jonsi, Hot Chip, and many others (but not Devo)...
"Moogfest promoter and creator Ashley Capps put paid attendance at between 7,000 and 8,000 people nightly, which was near capacity. "It's been a thrilling experience," said Capps, who also promotes the massive Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tenn. "With anything like this, you see things you want to improve and make changes on."Devo also cancelled their NYC show that was supposed to happen over the weekend at Hammerstein Ballroom, and their upcoming performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest (Devo are out out out of fun fun fun) (yeah yeah yeah) (sorry sorry sorry).
Friday's show cancellation by the legendary electropop band Devo "had an impact" at other Moogfest shows that night, Capps said. Fans instead poured into the Civic Center for a performance by rapper Big Boi, followed by the band MGMT. The arena was jammed for both shows." [Citizen Times]
Shout Out Out Out are now on a tour back north and will stop in NYC for two shows starting with Tuesday, November 2nd, at Le Poisson Rouge with Free Blood, and then Wednesday at Glasslands with Jacques Renault (the show was moved from Coco66).
