Devo suing McDonalds ++ win tickets to McCarren Pool


Post-punk pioneers Devo say they are suing McDonald’s in the US over a Happy Meal doll that sports the band’s signature red flower pot hat.

In April the fast food chain released a series of American Idol Happy Meal toys in the US based on a range of music genres, including Disco Dave, Country Clay, Rockin’ Riley and Soulful Selma.

Devo’s complaint relates to New Wave Nigel, a toy kitted out in an orange jumpsuit, pink shades, and Devo’s “energy dome” hat.

The band also allege that the toy plays a “Devo-esque song”. []

Devo, Tom Tom Club and Dan Deacon are playing McCarren Pool in Brooklyn this Thursday June 26th (6:00PM Doors/ 6:30PM Show). Tickets are still on sale, or you can try to win one of FIVE PAIRS I have to give away…..

TO WIN E-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Devo). Include your full name, and tell us the name of the festival that Devo just played in Barcelona and the name of the festival Dan Deacon just played in Philly. Five winners will be picked and contacted by end of day Wednesday.

Thanks to Musebox for the contest.

And just to be 100% clear…the show is at:

Williamsburg, Brooklyn
At Lorimer Street – Driggs Ave & Bayard St.

6:00PM Doors/ 6:30PM Show

I assume that means that Dan Deacon will go on sat 6:30 sharp.

Good luck.
