Talk About a Cool Dad: David Byrne & St. Vincent Live

By David Goe

Hey! Who's dad is that wandering around on stage during that St. Vincent show? Oh! It's David Byrne! Check out the silver fox and guitar shredding hottie giving a choreographed performance of songs from their 2012 album "Love This Giant." Though the entire show walks like, talks like, and sounds like a Talking Heads concert ("Stop Making Sense" anybody?) it's not. St. Vincent is given room to show her flare on guitar and answer the question as to why she got to do an album with Byrne.

The two throw in old favorites like the Talking Heads song "Burning Down the House" and St. Vincent's "Marrow" but it's mainly cuts from "Love This Giant" that make it into the set. Personally I think these two great musicians are far better separately than together but you decide. If you don't have time to watch the whole video fast forward to the start of "Burning Down the House" at 32:57. Not only is it the highlight of the set you've got to see the guy dancing in the audience like he's at a Prodigy show or something. Incredible.
