Today’s Blimp Time-Hop

34 years ago, the Talking Heads came to the Civic Center in Portland on their Speaking in Tongues tour. David Byrne brought the BIG SUIT and the funk punk to burn down the house with Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz! My old friend Rory Hersom was there on August 6, 1983. I was so jealous of him at the beginning of the new school year, because he was wearing a concert t-shirt from this show proudly walking the halls of Cony High, and I was not. It still wicked bugs me today that I wasn’t there! Friggin’ Rory.

The Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense film  is definitely one of our top 5 concert movies of all time. It was released digitally a few years back. Might be time for you to stream that suckah!

It opens with David Byrne walking out onstage playing Psycho Killer on acoustic guitar backed by beats on a boombox cassette player. Wicked cool!
