Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense

To commemorate the very special guest appearance of David Byrne at the Music Box Theatre, we will be screening one of the greatest concert events of all time.

See David Byrne at 7pm discuss his new book with Chicago Tribune critic Greg Kot for a special evening with author and Talking Heads co-founder David Byrne and Thrill Jockey Records founder Bettina Richards. The three will discuss Byrne’s new book, How Music Works, in which the legendary artist explores the joy, the physics and the business of making music.

Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense

directed by Jonathan Demme starring The Talking Heads

The Talking Heads live on stage. Need we say more?

Director Jonathan Demme expertly crafted this unrivaled concert film from footage of three live gigs at Hollywood’s Pantages Theatre. The staging concept — the brainchild of Talking Heads front man David Byrne — begins with the lead vocalist striding onto an empty stage, acoustic guitar and boom box in hand. With each new tune, another band member or backup singer joins Byrne onstage, building steadily toward the smokin’ finale.
