New York, David Byrne, Tutus, Rockettes

The Dadaist stage show master rocks Radio City Music Hall. Bertolt Brecht and Duchamp would be proud. This is transcending a genre.

Saw him do this same bit Monday at the Prospect Park  in Brooklyn. Larry, standing next to me, said it was “like getting a sun tan.” Yes it was.

Thanks, David! And the DANCERS, too! Holy moly.
