David Byrne for Free tonight in Prospect Park

Celebrate Brooklyn! presents a free concert with David Byrne. He will perform the music he worked on with Brian Eno: three Talking Heads albums, 1981’s groundbreaking My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, and last year’s Everything that Happens will Happen Today. An ensemble cast including dancers, background vocalists, and a singular band will amplify the spectacle.

The concert will be preceded at 5:30 P.M. with Celebrate Brooklyn’s first Green Gala, which includes cocktails, dinner and reserved seats for Byrne’s performance. Gala tickets, for $325 and up, are available at 718.855.7882 x33. The 8:00PM concert will be followed, at 9:45 P.M., by a dance party open to gala guests and Friends of Celebrate Brooklyn.

Back in 2005 I saw David Byrne play an outsdoor show at Central Park's Summerstage. The show went on despite the rain but Bryne did slip on stage and fall. Let's hope if it rains tonight he stays on his feet.
