David Byrne, St. Vincent offer reprise of ‘Love This Giant’
David Byrne and St. Vincent play Chateau Ste. Michelle on Thursday, July 18, performing material from their successful album “Love This Giant.”
David Byrne and St. Vincent’s 2012 CD, “Love This Giant,” is the album that won’t quit. It gave Byrne his first top-30 hit since his Talking Heads days, and the 2012 tour went so well that they’re taking the music out on the road again this summer. Backed by a punchy, slithering, pulsating brass band, the duo blends herky-jerky funk, heady lyrics and techno touches with irresistible results. Expect songs from St. Vincent’s and Talking Heads’ back catalog to be thrown into the mix — and sounding good on the tuba. 7 p.m. Thursday, Chateau Ste. Michelle, Woodinville; $55-$75 (800-745-3000 or www.ticketmaster.com).
