Akron, Ohio: Tribute to DEVO

Stand with your favorite Spud Boys in a life-size recreation of a photograph taken on April 10, 1978, just down the block. It's black and white, like the original publicity photo, except for the band's bright yellow radiation suits.

200 S. Main St., Akron, OH
Lock 3 Park. Downtown, on the east side of S. Main St., midway between W. Bowery and W. State Sts. The life-size photo tribute is mounted to the side of a building just to the right of the Park's open-air amphitheater stage.

Tribute to DEVO

I believe the original Chili Dog Mac building got demolished, but the photo of DEVO standing out front has been saved. It's now next to the stage in Lock 3 Park.
