St. Vincent/David Byrne @ Beacon Theater - 9/25/12
If you've been reading this site at all in the past week or so, you know that David Byrne & St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) recently kicked off their tour together in support of their collaborative album, Love This Giant. We've already posted pics of David and Annie at POP Montreal, where David also performed at the Pop vs Jock halftime show (the tour hit Chicago last week too), and surely you've been keeping up with Kelly Pratt's tour diary of his experiences on the road with David, Annie and co. That tour finally came to NYC last night (9/25) for the first of two Beacon Theater shows, and first of three NYC shows overall this week.
Their tour continues, hitting Beacon Theater again tonight (9/26) and Williamsburg Park on Sunday (9/29). Tickets for both of those shows are still available.
At Beacon, David and Annie were backed by their eight-piece horn section (Kelly Pratt included), and in addition to playing material off of Love This Giant, they spliced in songs from their respective solo careers, and included a few Talking Heads cuts as well. One of the Talking Heads songs they played was "Burning Down the House," which you can watch a video of from last night's show, along with more pictures from the show, below.
