Heads and Heart
A Jonathan Demme double feature: First up, the Oscar-winning director's 2006 concert film/documentary, Neil Young: Heart of Gold follows Young as he records his Prairie Wind album and prepares for two nights at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium with his band, including wife Pegi and singer Emmylou Harris. Followed by Demme's 1984 Stop Making Sense, which captures David Byrne in his oversized suit and the rest of the Talking Heads live while touring the classic Speaking in Tongues album; plus, bassist Tina Weymouth and drummer Chris Frantz's side project the Tom Tom Club, performing, you guessed it, "Genius of Love."
