    Description

    Devo "Are We Not Men?" 1979 Honolulu, Hawaii Concert Poster and Review. An original, colorful concert poster for Devo appearing at the University of Hawaii on June 1 & 2, 1979, two shows per night. This poster originated from someone who attended, and he informs us that the June 1 shows were canceled, only the second night happened, and that "there was hardly anyone there." Call it overly ambitious booking by Los Angeles-based concert promoter Avalon Attractions, listed at the top of the poster.

    This was just weeks before the release of Devo's second album, Duty Now for the Future. As a bonus, this lot also includes the Honolulu newspaper review, mounted to a light backing board for posterity.

    The poster was printed on paper very similar to newsprint, measures a shade under 16" x 23" and grades to Near Mint Minus condition, with just the pronounced four-way crease from being quarter-folded as an issue, but also a couple of light corner creases. COA from Heritage Auctions.
