Midnight Madness: Stop Making Sense at Inwood Theatre
Brentney Hamilton Recommends
Homework: If you haven't yet, read David Byrne's 2012 book 'How Music Works.' It describes in obsessive, wonderful, Byrnean detail the ins and outs of creating a rock show that changed everything. Released in 1984, 'Stop Making Sense' constructs a concert one piece of a time, beginning with just Byrne singing with an acoustic guitar and building up to full-on ecstatic dance experience. It remains one of the best music films of all time and a beautiful landmark in the legacy of recently departed director Jonathan Demme.
