Night of music and a music film ‘Stop Making Sense’

Following on from a series of sell out nights The Boyle Songwriters Collective, in association with The Dock, are pleased to present an evening of film and music. 

'Stop Making Sense' a concert movie from the rock group The Talking Heads.

Original music performed by Boyle Songwriters Collective musicians.

'Stop Making Sense' is a live 1984 album by Talking Heads and the soundtrack to the film of the same name. David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense. 

The evening starts at 7:30pm with a selection of songs, performed by members of the Boyle Songwriters Collective.  This is a group of locally based songwriters who meet in Boyle on a regular basis to discuss, encourage and share original material.
