Humphreys Concerts by the bay present Devo
Almost 40 years after first appearing in their yellow jumpsuits and “flower-pot” hats, Devo is still making music together. Devo formed in Akron, Ohio in 1972. They were new wave’s first and most successful band. Their huge single “Whip It,” with the help of MTV made them a cult sensation. In 2010, Devo released their first album in 20 years, Something For Everybody, which proved that Devo could continue to create quality music that appeals to fans new and old, still fitting comfortably with their back catalog.

Master Harold … and the Boys
Living Light Theatre presents South African playwright Athol Fugard’s heart-wrenching drama, Master Harold … and the Boys. An ordinary rainy afternoon in 1950s South Africa turns into a profound and life-changing experience for young, white Harold and the beloved black servants who have been his surrogate fathers. Faced with the return of his tyrannical father, Harold transfers his anger and pain to his servants, transforming their relationship for the first time from childhood friends and companions into subservient help.
