David Byrne and St. Vincent at Denver Botanic Gardens (photos)By Glenn Ross | July 15th, 2013 | 4 comments
Amid a Saturday of scattered rain showers, David Byrne and St. Vincent started about an hour and a half late at the Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield location. A large crowd battled the weather to stick around for the full concert.
Byrne, the former Talking Heads frontman and indie darling singer-songwriter, St. Vincent, released their collaborative album, “Love This Giant,” in September of last year. They performed on Saturday — once the rain had passed — with a full brass band and a set that included collaborative songs as well as some of their solo work. The duo got the biggest response when Byrne performed old Talking Heads tunes.
