On the heels of their triumphant appearance at Coachella 2010, Devo -- the iconic New Wave act formed in 1973 in Akron, Ohio -- are headlining the San Diego Pride Festival on Sunday. 

With such classics as "Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo" and the appropriately titled "Freedom of Choice" in their arsenal, the band will also be performing songs off 2010's "Something for Everybody," their first full-length release in 20 years.

Having recently seen Devo at Coachella, I recommend you get ready to strap on your "Energy Dome" and beam back to '80s during their tremendously awesome, quirky, high-energy show. No strangers to San Diego, Devo appeared at Street Scene and the Del Mar Summer Concert Series in 2008. Speaking of, here's an interview I did with Devo for DelMarScene.com (check out my Price is Right mike):

Devo will be performing at San Diego Pride Festival’s Cox Communications main stage at 7:15 p.m. on Sunday.
