Are We Not Men?

Was it 1979? No one had ever seen or heard anything like it. Here's a scene from my distorted and unreliable memory. Taking Miguel to see Devo.
"God made man but a monkey provided the glue"
Didn't they open for Elvis Costello that night? Devo onstage in yellow rubber boots. This was before the flower pots on the head. Elvis in some kind of checkered jacket. And when was it that we went to see "Rock and Roll High School"? And the Ramones were on stage live that night. Wasn't there a concert with David Johanson, Willie Alexander, Pere Ubu and the Ramones? Those were the days for sure.
