Back in the olden days, my human used to go to a lot of record release parties, fabulous rock star-studded, catered affairs with open bars and free CDs (this was in the days before iTunes). But her cats were never invited to be part of the fun. Well, thanks to classic New Wavers Devo, all that has changed! Today, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Pacific Time, Devo is throwing a record release party to celebrate their new album, Something for Everybody — for us kitties! Twenty lucky Los Angeles-based cats get to attend in person at Devo’s label, Warner Brothers Records. But don’t worry, all you out of town felines — Devo has not forgotten you. The event will also be streamed live! Don’t miss this historic event!
I was not able to get the proper credentials to attend in person, so I will be checking out the streaming video. However, I will send my human to Warner Bros. in my place so she can report back about any behind the scenes goings-on! She and her boyfriend are longtime Devo fans. In fact, I won’t say who, but somebody here is old enough to have a copy of Freedom of Choice on a huge black plastic platter! (What are those things called anyway? Vine-all, or something like that?) It took an intensive archeological excavation to locate it. But don’t worry, I am giving it the mark of identification in case it gets donated to a museum.
