The Name of This Band Is *NOT* Talking Heads

The headliner at the American Tripps New Year’s Eve party was most of a band called North American Scum. Jokingly started as an LCD Soundsystem cover band, for this show they reshaped as a Talking Heads cover band.

They were great! The lead singer even looks a little like David Byrne, and he had some of the signature dance moves down. They did all the hits and tore it up right after midnight with “Burning Down the House.” It was especially fun to sing along to one of my favorite songs of all time with a hundred other people:

“A Naive Melody (This Must Be the Place)”

“Once in a Lifetime”

Sorry for the rough recordings. I didn’t want to lose my spot, front and center!
