SLCene Suggests: David Byrne & St. Vincent at Red Butte Garden

by on July 14, 2013

DAVID BYRNE & ST. VINCENT, RED BUTTE GARDEN, Monday, July 15, 7:30 p.m., $55

David Byrne has collaborated with artists from all over the world since embarking on a solo career after his time in Talking Heads, and while his work with Brian Eno is arguably the most successful, his recent effort with indie-rock chanteuse St. Vincent (real name: Annie Clark) ranks right up there. Love This Giant, released last year, is a remarkably strong collection, and remarkably cohesive as well, considering the two traded music and lyrics across the Internet in constructing the thing. The brass-heavy collection makes for an interesting live show, which last year featured eight horn players, a keyboardist and drummer in addition to Byrne and Clark on guitars. Anyone who saw Byrne in his last visit to Red Butte Garden knows the man loves a theatrical production, and I’m anticipating the same for this show, which should feature a few Talking Heads and St. Vincent tunes, as well as a whole lot of Love This Giant.
