David Byrne

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this show… really with Bryne in general, since he is all over the musical landscape.  Yes, there were doubts, but those doubts were quickly erased.  With the second song of I Zimbra I knew things would be just fine (great actually).  Byrne played a number of tunes from the new Byrne/Eno release, Everything That Happens Will Happen Today, at least one song each from My Life In a Bush of Ghosts and the Catherine Wheel and then a sweet selection of songs from the Talking Heads.  I can’t imagine anyone went away disappointed (there were three encores).

Photos here and a N&O review here / here.

p.s. I find it kid of interesting that the last time I saw the Talking Heads (Stop Making Sense tour) they were all dressed in black. For this performance, everyone was dressed in white.
