TALKING HEADS: Stop Making Sense, Jonathan Demme's classic in-concert film, capturing the power of te pioneering alternative-rock quartet, and featuring David Byrne in an oversized suit leading idyosyncratic dance routines, is to get a special screening.
Beats & Pieces present Stop Making Sense in The Loft, Seven, Bridge Street, this Saturday, where it will be screened on a 12 foot HD screen. Shot over three nights at Hollywood's Pantages Theater in December 1983, it features the band performing 'Once In A Lifetime', 'Psycho Killer', 'Burning Down The House' and 'Life During Wartime'. The film has been hailed by Leonard Maltin as "one of the greatest rock movies ever made," while The New Yorker's Pauline Kael called it "...close to perfection".
There will be an after-party with DJs Anthony Collins, Mac Gigantic, and Ferg. Stop Making Sense is the first of a few select music documentary/concert screenings at The Loft.
Doors are at 9.30pm. Screening starts 10.30pm. Tickets are €8 (screening and after party ) or €5 (after party only ) on the door.
