David Byrne playing Fallon w/ St. Vincent, doing book readings on tour, including one at NYPL (dates)
As mentioned, David Byrne and St. Vincent are making an album together this year called Love This Giant (due out 9/11 via 4AD/Todo Mundo) and will be touring in support of it this September and October. Before that tour kicks off, the two musicians will team up for a performance on Late Night with JImmy Fallon, which airs on September 10, one day before their album is released.
Their tour hits NYC on September 25 and 26 at Beacon Theatre and Spetember 29 at Williamsburg Park. Tickets to all three shows are still available. A list of all dates on the tour and streams of two album tracks, "Who" and "Weekend in the Dust," at the bottom of this post.
In related news, David Byrne has a new book, How Music Works, and he'll be doing some book readings/discussions in various cities, including one in NYC on December 5 at the New York Public Library.
