Record release show for Dead On TV's new EP, CREEPER! 

Shit Show New-Wave Garage Punk From Chicago, Dead on TV has stroked audiences all over the nation with their brand of explosive new-wave punk narcissism. This sound, coupled with the smash and grab disruption of lead singer Dan Evans, the brutal machine-like ineptness of drummer Vince Mcaley, the pounding low end of synth player Mike Bradberry and a complete and heinous disregard for the life of guitar player Corey Devlin has resulted in some of the most epically offensive shows ever removed from youtube for violation of community standards.

Nik, Omar, and Bradley were born as siamese triplets. We found Luke later on. He was a prom night dumpster baby.

Punk Rock/Alternative/Whatever you think we are band band from Chicago.

What We're Watching:

       Classic DEVO live in 1978-79 
philosophy and more!

Here at ChiIL Live Shows we dig DEVO. We grew up with their music and they were still fanstastic when we saw them tour with Blondie on the Whip It To Shreds Tour.  This new DVD/digital release is a must have for any serious music collector. Why?

It's in demand: The original VHS it's based on goes for hundreds of dollars! 

It's subversive:  Originally shelved by Time Life due to concerns about its anti-music industry content.

It's a slice of music history:  Some of the earliest professionally shot footage of DEVO And Bonus film: 1996 Sundance Film Festival live show featuring early DEVO songs

The Men Who Make the Music combines concert footage from DEVO's 1978 tour with music videos and interstitials featuring a vague story about DEVO's rocky relationship with "Big Entertainment." 

As for the bonus program, Butch Devo and the Sundance Gig, Jerry Casale says, "In January of '96, we closed Sundance Film Festival. We wore 20s style prison suits and dished out classic DEVO songs to an unsuspecting audience of Hollywood elite."
