Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
David Byrne is a modern renaissance man and that s not just a cliché. From the heady days as co-founder of the celebrated art new-wave group Talking Heads (1976-88) through his own constantly evolving and innovative solo music career, he has pursued his muse on many different artistic fronts. He s been the driving force behind a body of work that has been both intellectually daring and commercially successful...and he shows no signs of slowing down three decades later.
This performance, captured on November 28, 2001, came on the heels of his hit single, Like Humans Do and the release of the album Look Into the Eyeball, which was another typically eclectic musical stew reflecting a variety of styles and influences, from Philly soul to a D.C. Go-Go inspired groove and his first-ever Spanish composition, Descondido Soy. Critics at the time called it his best work in years, and his performance on the Austin City Limits stage shows why. Joined by Austin s own eclectic tango ensemble Tosca, Byrne takes us down many different musical roads in his ACL debut.
