David Byrne and St Vincent

ABC Dig Music feature artists David Byrne and St. Vincent perform as part of the 2013 Sydney Festival

The fabulous pairing of David Byrne (ex-Talking Heads) and St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) is coming to Sydney as part of the 2013 Sydney Festival, with two dates at the State Theatre on January 17 and 18.

These two New York musicians have spent the last three years (between other commitments) working on the release Love This Giant, using a large brass backing band in favour of a traditional rock line-up.

Reviews from their recent gigs in the U.S. indicate that the shows include a large sprinkling of theatrics, with choreographed dance-moves, a constantly moving band and each artist delving into their own catalogue of material. 

Make sure you keep an eye on their tour blog - David Byrne is updating it regularly.

ABC Dig Music is a media supporter for these shows.
