Last Monday night, Craig and I did something unusual.
We went out on a weeknight! My wonderful mom stayed with the kids and Craig and I got to see David Byrne in concert in San Francisco at Davies Symphony Hall. It was pretty much like the blown-out image above and so much fun!
You might remember that when I first heard he was touring I kind of went apeshit and immediately bought tickets. Craig was lukewarm on the idea, but I dragged him along anyway. (Who else was going to keep me from running up onto the stage?)
It was an amazing concert, and I got further confirmation that I married well because Craig didn’t mind that I danced the entire time and couldn’t wipe the goofy grin off my face. I defy anyone to not have a good time in the face of such happy music. Hell, he even played my favorite song from “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts” called “Help Me Somebody.” (The youtube video just has the audio accompanied by some artwork from the album cover.) I never expected to hear that song live, so yay me!
The show ended with a marching band and “Burning Down the House” natch, but they had already played “Crosseyed and Painless” which is one of my favorite songs of all songs in the world.
If you like David Byrne or Talking Heads I really recommend you go to this show. Craig liked it so much he was trying to convince me to look into flying to other shows on the tour!
