David Byrne and St. Vincent were phenomenal. There were only three Talking Heads songs in the set, and they were all great. Hearing St. Vincent songs with lots of trumpets was pretty cool too.
Oh, and I got MUTHFUCKIN DAVID BYRNE to sign my Fear of Music vinyl. Seriously friendly guy. He signed everything that the people waiting outside had, (except for the guy who wanted him to sign EVERY Talking Heads album. He only got him to sign True Stories lol), he took pictures, and then he walked off down the street by himself to go to his hotel. He was rushing it a little, but that's pretty much what everyone does.
I didn't get to see Annie at all. She must have left before I got to the side of the venue.

Tonight is the Bosnian Rainbows show (Omar) and Crypts is opening. I can't imagine how awkward this Crypts show will be at the triple door. People eating food while watching Crypts kind of feels like eating steak at strip clubs. Just seems wrong.

Fuckin' Geno all meetin' David Byrne. Awesome, dude. And BURN on that fucker who tried to get a whole stack signed, haha. A signed copy of True Stories is less exciting than being able to proudly say that you don't own a copy of True Stories at all.
I'm glad it was a good show, but only three Talking Heads songs is quite a Fuck You. I'm a little sad I missed it, but not very much. There's pretty much no way it would have measured up to the David Byrne show we saw a couple of years ago.
So ya... James Murphy is coming and that's pretty awesome, but now the VERY NEXT NIGHT, The fucking Pharcyde is gonna play Bizarre Ride II in it's entirety. Those of you that know me, know that I don't normally care too much about all the hips and the hops, but this shit has me very excited.
