Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense

(1984, dir. Jonathan Demme, w/ Bernie Worrell, Alex Weir, Steven Scales, Lynn Mabry)

STOP MAKING SENSE captures the frantic energy and artsy groove of Talking Heads, all documented in this concert movie shot at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in 1983. The band's front man, David Byrne, first appears on an empty stage, armed with only an acoustic guitar, and is gradually joined by bassist Tina Weymouth, drummer Chris Frantz, keyboardist Jerry Harrison and a cadre of backup singers as they perform the band's hits, culminating in an iconic performance featuring Byrne in an enormous suit. This is a “once in a lifetime” chance to experience this seminal work on the Astor’s SuperScreen and massive sound system. (IMDB)
