David Byrne

This year marks the 30th anniversary of Johnathan Demme's classic Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense, and the film has been making the rounds at various screenings around the country and was just released on Blu-Ray. The film will screen as part of Lincoln Center's Sound + Vision Festival at the Walter Reade Theater on August 1, to be followed by a Q&A with David Byrne himself. File this one under 'not to be missed.'

Tickets are sold out, but If you'd still like to go we have two pairs of tickets to the Lincoln Center screening to give away. ALSO one of those two winners will also be getting the new Blu-Ray of the film SIGNED BY ALL FOUR MEMBERS of the Talking Heads.
