Last night marked the start of David Byrne's "No Boundaries" series at Carnegie Hall. It was the first performance in fifteen years of the complete music from his 1985 music-theater collaboration with Robert Wilson, The Knee Plays. Tonight he continues the four night event called "Welcome to Dreamland". The evening features a handfull of his favorite experimental folk rockers, including: Vashti Bunyan, Cibelle, CocoRosie, and Devendra Banhart. Each with sonic roots in 60s psychedelia, jam bands, world music and more.
While there isn't any footage from his Carnegie Hall Perspectives series just yet, we did find this very odd video consisting of 5 minutes of Patton Oswalt staring at the camera, and then David Byrne performing a song (while sitting in a storage locker).
The next famous David to curate a festival in New York? David Bowie and his Highline Festival, coming in May 2007.
