Mark Mothersbaugh Trolley Tour

June 16, 2016, 6:30 pm

Janet Macoska’s Chili Dog Mac photo beside the Akron Civic Theater commemorates DEVO’s Satisfaction video shoot in 1978, but not all of Akron’s DEVO history is similarly labeled and identified. Many of the important DEVO-related landmarks no longer exist, requiring a diehard spud and music historian to properly point out where they were. Luckily, we’ve rounded up DEVO nerd David Giffels who will lead participants on a trolley tour of important Mark Mothersbaugh and DEVO-related venues—including the Crypt nightclub, an old rubber stamp shop at Quaker Square, and Harlan Hall, the band's secret Akron headquarters—offering stories and anecdotes along the way.

End the tour at the Akron Art Museum and explore the Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia exhibition.
