WIN TICKETS to this show.Alternative music icons David Byrne and Brian Eno recently released their first collaborative album since 1981. The warmly received affair is titled "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today," and Rolling Stone magazine says it "sounds more like a Talking Heads record than anything Byrne's done since the band split in 1991." For those unfamiliar with the history, Eno produced three Talking Heads records-1978's "More Songs About Buildings and Food," 1979's "Fear of Music" and 1980's "Remain in Light" -as well as Byne's 1981 tape-collage project "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts." Byrne is currently hitting the road sans Eno to perform songs from all of the above titles with support from an eight-piece band and three dancers.Doors at 7:00pm. Show at 8:00pm.
