Watch the first video to spout from the David Byrne and St. Vincent collaboration album, available Tuesday. Martin de Tureh directed the black and white performance in a manner as quirky as the song and the collaborators themselves. The album brims with classic David Byrne flavor. Mix that with the fresh-faced, divergent sounding St. Vincent, and you have yourself one tasty and twisted little drink.
Could not pack more good stuff into one long weekend. Nope, physical impossibility. Chicago is a culinary, auditory and visual feast.
Also, watch this video. These guys helped me space out for a couple of hours on the dancefloor, and this brilliant video (if only for a few minutes) should help you do the same:
