New Wave legends and cultural anti-theorists Devo are celebrating their 35th anniversary with a pair of epic shows: Playing their taut landmark Q: Are We Not Men? tonight and their best-selling Freedom of Choice tomorrow. Who cares if pointless nostalgia trips are "Devo" or not; the Mothersbaugh and Casale brothers, mostly pushing 60, have lost none of their trademark quirk and showmanship on stage. And the band has lost none of their punk-rock muscle, thanks to drummer-to-the-stars Josh Freese.
