School of Rock Play the Talking Heads!

Posted by on Fri, Jan 25, 2013 at 11:03 AM

(Triple Door) For most artists, live albums are souvenirs for existing fans. But once in a while—James Brown's Live at the Apollo, Frampton Comes Alive!, Cheap Trick at Budokan—a live album takes on a life of its own, functioning as a pop breakthrough and winning the artist millions of new fans. Such was the case with Stop Making Sense, the concert album/film soundtrack that threw a lasso around 10 years of Talking Heads' brilliance and offered it up whole to the new audience the band was earning via MTV. Tonight, the Talking Heads' de facto greatest hits are brought alive onstage by the faculty and students of Seattle's School of Rock.
