I just got back from seeing David Byrne in concert. He was awesome. We missed a good chunk of the show...the tickets were misprinted. His band was pretty darn awesome. His bassist sang just about all the backing vocals as duets (and did so while playing a 5-string bass). He had both a drummer and a percussionist. And, right as we showed up, he added 3 violin players, a viola player, and 2 cellists. They added quite a bit to the quality and complexity of the music. If he's coming to your town, I highly recommend you fit in the time to check out this show.
And we had good beer. Mmm...beer.
Less topical stuff later.
