Akron has produced a number of great rock musicians over the years. Mark Mothersbaugh, leader of the New Wave act Devo, ranks as one of the top musicians to emerge from the Rubber City.

Both the Akron Art Museum and the Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art currently have exhibitis featuring his artwork. As part of the MYOPIA Mark Mothersbaugh 3-D Experience and Victory Slam, the local groups Half Cleveland (members of Tin Huey and the Waitresses), the Bizarros and the Numbers Band will perform a special set that will pay tribute to Mothersbaugh at 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 5, on the outdoor stage at the Rock Hall. 



“We've defined this as being a perfect example of the 'Akron Sound' from then and now: Three bands who are completely different from one another, yet with zero degrees of separation,” says Half Cleveland’s Harvey Gold in a press release. “Code word: eclectic.”

It’s a free show.
