Inbox Update: DEVO Men Who Make The Music / Butch Devo & The Sundance Gig

I wanted to make sure I highlighted this release because it's such big news that this early look at DEVO is coming to DVD early next month! Here is the official media release...

DEVO The Men Who Make The Music / Butch Devo & The Sundance Gig 
Available on DVD and Digital Formats on August 12
Classic DEVO live in 1978-79, philosophy, and more!
Rolling Stone premieres "Too Much Paranoia" clip

The Men Who Make the Music combines concert footage from DEVO's 1978 tour with music videos and interstitials featuring a vague story about DEVO's rocky relationship with "Big Entertainment." 
As for the bonus program, Butch Devo and the Sundance Gig, Jerry Casale says, "In January of '96, we closed Sundance Film Festival. We wore 20s style prison suits and dished out classic DEVO songs to an unsuspecting audience of Hollywood elite."
