    Last year's collaboration between St. Vincent (Annie Clarke) and David Bryne was surprising on many levels. The album they wrote and recorded together, Love This Giant, is inspired and artful, if not as immediately accessible as some of the solo work each of them has made in the past. On stage, performed live at the Strathmore music hall in Bethesda, MD, the songs found their heart and soul. A band of brilliant brass players made the tunes swing a lot more than they do on the record.

    Love This Giant allowed both Byrne and Clark to make songs that were slightly out of their comfort zones; they dug into less familiar territory and found something fresh. When performed live, new songs such as Who and I Am an Ape sound powerful. But old favorites also surfaced from their solo catalogs, whether it was Talking Heads' Burning Down the House or the Byrne-Eno collaboration Strange Overtones, or St. Vincent performing Marrow from her 2009 album Actor.

    All of these performances became less about nostalgia or their individual fame, and more about creation and building on something great, from a pair of strong creative souls born 30 years apart.

    As you watch the performance, keep an eye out for Kelly Pratt, formerly of the band Beirut, on lead horn, as well as fantastic synchronized dancing choreographed by Annie-B Parson. You can also see Byrne and Clark rehearse for the concert in this special video from our In Practice series.--BOB BOILEN

    Who be my valentine?
    Who lift this heavy load?
    Who share this taxi cab?
    Who wants to climb aboard?

    Who is an honest man?
    Who is an honest man?

    Who held a dying soldier?
    Fall for the other time?
    Carried these men and women?
    Who gets lost when the sun goes down?

    Who is an honest man?
    Who is an honest man?

    Who walks this dusty road?
    Who always pulls their weight?
    Who's this inside of me?
    Who made a big mistake?
    Who sees these constellation?
    (???)
    Carry these men and women?
    Who get lost when the sun goes down?

    Who is an honest man?
    Who is an honest man?

    With a graceful motion she sat down slowly
    Drank a cup of coffee and she'd fold her laundry
    She begins to tell us her life story
    All around the table everybody's staring

    Who shouts out hallelujah?
    Who's gonna sing out loud?
    Carry these men and women?
    Who gets lost when the sun goes down?

    Who's getting out of here?
    Who thinks they're wide awake?
    Who's gonna be my friend?
    All around the table everybody's staring

  • In Practice: David Byrne And St. Vincent

    7:53

    When I first heard that David Byrne and St. Vincent's Annie Clark would collaborate, I imagined a quirky, guitar-based dance band. I never expected an eight-piece brass ensemble or a theremin duet. What's brilliant about their album together, Love This Giant, is what makes collaboration exciting: the desire to explore and challenge. We find both artists outside their comfort zones, making music that couldn't have happened independently of each other. It's unlike anything out there today.

    Byrne and Clark are taking the album out on tour, too. Last month, we went to the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, N.J., on the final day of rehearsals to get a glimpse into the nature of this joint effort. We saw two visionary artists, one just about twice the age of the other, making music one calculated step at a time. It's a big project, with those eight horn players in constant, choreographed motion as they play songs from the new album, music from Byrne's thrilling catalog (including a stunning version of Talking Heads' Burning Down the House) and St. Vincent songs such as Cruel. They also worked with choreographer Annie-B Parson, who suggested eccentric dance moves for Byrne, Clark and the eight horn players. In these rehearsals, I could see the alchemy for a perfect two hours of quirk and delight.

    Watching a rehearsal is a bit like watching a magician rehearse a trick: You risk losing some of the enchantment, but gain insight into the process. It's a literal peek behind the curtain at two artists who generally maintain a mysterious veneer and a cool distance between personality and work — and each other. That was the part I found so interesting. Love This Giant is a true collaboration, a back-and-forth exchange of words and music, yet throughout the rehearsals and the show, there was little obvious eye contact between the duo. The staging — and the music itself — comes off as a work of two artists in parallel, not an amalgam. Sometimes that's a bit of a letdown, but it makes moments when they do come together, like their fiery theremin duet, so thrilling.

    As this giant work moves from rehearsal space to stages across the country and beyond, those calculated moves — from taped marks on the floor to mental notes in the head — melt away. I saw that happening at their recent show at Strathmore Hall in Maryland. (We'll have some video from that show for you soon.) What Annie Clark says in this video is so true: Magic takes planning. You're about to see the plan. -- Bob Boilen

  • David Byrne & St.Vincent close the show with itchy-O; Road to Nowhere 7.13.13

    4:29

    David Byrne, St. Vincent, itchy-O Westword Review, by Tom Murphy-
    ...After Burning Down the House, everyone left stage for a minute or a few but came back to perform Road to Nowhere and as that song segued out, David Byrne said, And now from Denver, Colorado, Itchy-O. That's when the marching band began, having already walked on stage behind Byrne, Clark and company to cries of Who is that? and What is this? and the like. All masks and purple and gold and black uniforms with some members in sombreros and others with cowls and various other head coverings, Itchy-O must have seemed like something out of a dream to the uninitiated.

    Even with the thirty-odd people on stage, having joined the expansive David Byrne and St. Vincent line-up in a bit of an overlap at the end of Road to Nowhere, there was a grace and otherworldliness to Itchy-O's songs mostly intensely percussive and partly hauntingly electronic micro-melodies. Probably more than half of this audience did not even know who Itchy-O was, and for those that did, it was a nice and completely unexpected surprise to close out the night with two of its own compositions.

    I Should Watch TV Lyrics:

    I used to think that I should watch TV
    I used to think that it was good for me
    Wanted to know what folks were thinking
    To understand the land I live in
    And I would lose myself
    And it would set me free

    This is the place where common people go
    A global franchise; one department store
    Yes, there were many awkward moments
    I had to do some self-atonement
    Well, if I opened up
    Well, it would set me free

    I know, I like
    Behold and love this giant
    Big soul, big lips
    That's me and I am this
    Everybody is a touched up hairdo
    Everybody's in the passing lane
    Had a reason that she touched all channels
    The weird things that live in there

    I took a walk down to the park today
    I wrote a song called 'Just Like You and Me'
    I heard the jokes from the sports reporter
    The rival teams when they faced each other
    The more I lost myself,
    The more it set me free

    How am I not your brother
    How are you not like me
    Everybody's in the hotel lobby
    I'm living in here, yes I am
    I feel it moving in my arms and fingers
    Touch me, Feel happy

    It's good to lose and it's good to win sometimes
    It's good to die and it's good be alive
    Maybe someday we can stand together
    Not afraid of what we see
    Maybe someday understand them better
    The weird things inside of me
