Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo) Art Show Opens in May at 3rd Ward Gallery in Brooklyn

Devo Plays McCarren Pool Park/Mothersbaugh Art Exhibit at 3rd Ward GalleryIt is probably old news by now that tickets went on sale today for Devo's show at McCarren Pool in Williamsburg. Devo plays the East Coast too infrequently these days (the last NYC show was at Hammerstein in 2005). There are only three East Coast dates scheduled so I don't mind the $52 ticket price but it still bugs the [deleted word] out of me that Ticketmaster surcharges add another 20% to the ticket price.

Mark Mothersbaugh's art exhibit Postcard Diaries open in NYC on May 10th at 3rd Ward Gallery in Brooklyn.

"During his downtime on early worldwide tours with DEVO, Mark began illustrating on postcards to send to his friends and family, which he still creates, and has been creating every day for over 30 years. It's an obsessive habit/hobby, which still yields anywhere from one to a couple dozen new postcard-sized images per day. You can find more info on Mark's visual art at"

The public showing starts at 8PM on May 10th. 3rd Ward Gallery's website says the "[o]pening night will be a Super Thing Circus with live music, interactive art, limited edition merchandise, and a cyber appearance by Mark Mothersbaugh himself."
