Notes
  • Devo may have also played the First Avenue Club on 11/02/88 (which the recording below might be from and is commonly labelled), but I have found no evidence of a show occuring on the 2nd. Also, an attendee to the show on the 1st didn't recall there being another performance the next day. In his words, "At that time, I probably would have went both nights and I don't recall them doing any two night stands in Minneapolis."
