David Byrne and Devotchka Tonight at Red Rocks

June 2009
davidbDavid Byrne has always walked an impressive line between avant-garde and popular appeal. There's just enough artsy weirdness in his unique meld of gospel, rock, electronic, and world music to make his songs compelling. In his current tour, "David Byrne, Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno," Byrne taps into that eclectic style as well as his work with experimental musician and producer Eno. Hometown heroes Devotchka (Eastern European music merged with romantic pop balladry) open. Bonus: To get a feel for Byrne's tour (and for a laugh), watch him here on the "Colbert Report." Sat, June 20. 7:30 p.m. Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 18300 W. Alameda Parkway, Morrison, 720-865-2494 $55-$69.50
