This event has passed.

A dance party celebrating the music and influence of The Talking Heads.

 

Among the most adventurous bands in rock history, the Talking Heads drew from funk, minimalism and African and Brazilian music in promulgating a new sound that was both visionary and visceral. Evolving from sweaty post-punk weirdos opening for the Ramones at CBCG to the well oiled funk automatons depicted in Jonathan Demme's seminal 1984 concert film, Stop Making Sense, the band never lost sight of their guiding principle: that being alive in the postmodern world is a deeply strange, deeply unsettling proposition. We couldn't agree more.

 

Expect to hear music from all of The Talking Heads albums, rare remixes, side projects (Tom Tom Club), solo projects (David Byrne), collaborators (Bernie Worrell, Brian Eno) as well as from the many artists indelibly influenced by this legendary group.

 

Music selected by: Kadeejah Streets, Ben Tactic, Abbie Gobeli and Ben Meadow
