Turns out that while Mark Mothersbaugh was on the road with Devo back in the day (1978best SNL band appearance of all time?), he was sending back elaborately illustrated postcards. The hobby has persisted to this day, and now 3rd Ward presents a celebration of Mothersbaughs artistic postal aesthetic in The Super Thing: NYC goes DEVO. As the title implies, the exhibit also showcases a slew of other artists who represent the Devo sensibility. Tonight, Mothersbaughwhose recent gigs include music for most of director Wes Andersons films as well as the Apple vs. PC campaignwill make a guest cyber-appearance. Feel free to wear funny hats!
