Tonight Devo recreate their 1978 debut LP, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo!—a concept album with (robotic) legs. Its 10 originals laid out the Akron, Ohio, band's theories of de-evolution with mordant wit and discordant, spastic electronic rock that still sends jolts of excitement through skeptics and weirdos of all ages. Their absurdly stilted, jaggedly funky cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" is the cherry on this still-fresh cake. Plus, yellow boilersuits and flowerpot hats. (Moore Theatre, 1932 Second Ave, 877-784-4849. 7:30 pm, $38–$75, all ages.)
