David Byrne

Last night, Thursday, September 25th, David Byrne kicked off the non-festival grounds portion of the 2008 Austin City Limits Music Festival with a performance at The Paramount. He played some Eno-produced Talking Heads crowd favorites as well as songs off his new Eno-produced album, "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today." We don't have the setlist, but you can get an idea of what he played by looking at the one from the first night of the tour.

It was a loaded performance with backup dancers whose choreography complemented Byrne's tunes perfectly. Byrne and co. will do it again Friday night, this time as one of the actual ACL festival headliners on a day (today) that will also see performances by Yeasayer, Vampire Weekend, Gogol Bordello, Jamie Lidell, Hot Chip, Jenny Lewis, N.E.R.D, The Swell Season, The Mars Volta and Manu Chao. You can view the entire ACL festival schedule HERE. More pictures of David Byrne below...
