Once upon a time, Chicago had it's very own Talking Heads tribute band that it exported to venues across the country.

Sadly, This Must Be The Band is no more but, hey, we can import talent to fill that hole they left.  Bethlehem, PA's Start Making Sense will play Martyrs' on Saturday, April 16th, and are certainly drawing from a shared playbook.

Like TMBTB, Start Making Sense will offer a full performance of the landmark Talking Heads concert film Stop Making Sense.

They promise to follow that up with a set of hits not in the film and what they call "deeper, weirder cuts".  That sounds alright to me.

Here's a sense for the band's showmanship.  The can certainly play big, so it'll be a treat to see how this plays out on Martyrs' more intimate stage.
