It’s been 40 years since Devo released its debut album, and seven local bands will commemorate the iconic techno-pop group’s career in a tribute show to benefit the Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy. The event will feature performances by Radio Orangevale, A Death in Bloom, Instagon, the Hey Nows, the Roa Brothers Band, Empty Wagon, and the Jankies. Bands will perform more than two dozen Devo classics, such as “Whip It,” “Peekaboo,” and “(I Can’t Get no) Satisfaction.” All proceeds will benefit the Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy (SPMA). SPMA’s mission is “to support and advance access to lifelong learning opportunities in music arts education.” The organization has garnered praise in recent years for providing kids and adult learners the opportunity to perform in large-scale tribute shows, including fully orchestrated productions of three Beatles albums: Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, and the White Album. “The idea was to get a bunch of indie bands to put on a tribute show to benefit an organization that puts on tribute shows,” says Devo tribute organizer, Bobby Waller of the Jankies. “Music education is getting harder and harder to come by these days, and SPMA is doing a great job of teaching kids the ropes.”
