Our video tonight is a shaky bootleg audience video shot during the fabled “DEVOBama” benefit, held in Akron Ohio last October.

If ever there was a more DEVO assortment of famous and infamous people, I haven’t seen it.
Oh, this was also a benefit for Barack Obama, and he starts his new job Tuesday. There’s more low-fi shaky DEVOBAMA video after the “Read More” link….
