Impressions of David Byrne




I saw David Byrne and St. Vincent at the Orpheum in San Francisco last night. It's amazing to see a musician you have known from childhood. There's some kind of space and time continuum at work in this case. What a super fun show, very joyful. People in the audience yelled "We love you David!". I took some photos with my phone and 20 seconds video of the song Burning Down The House. Before the show started I thought it must be strange to be about to go on stage. Would you think about how you would be or jokes to tell. This turned out to be false. David Byrne just did his thing-- seemed very natural. What a great night.
