A Recommendation For You To Watch

Lots of music. Dance. Theater. Philosophy. Performance art. Comedy.

I had heard a growing murmur about a new HBO special, “David Byrne’s American Utopia.” One of the DJ’s on my favorite 80’s “alternative music” station on SirusXM was talking about it. The New York Times mentioned it. I was more than a bit curious.

It. Is. Wonderful!!

Apparently (I’m going from memory of some of the comments and NYT article and I’m too lazy to look it up right at this second because it’s on and I’m watching again) it’s done by Spike Lee, filmed during live performances on Broadway. As was done with the filming of “Hamilton,” this isn’t just a concert film, it’s filmed inside the action, above it, behind it, from the audience…

It. Is. Spectacular.

Most highly recommended.

Treat yourself.

Especially this weekend, where we have the blue moon, Halloween, THE FREAKIN’ ELECTION, we turn back the clocks in the US…

It’s too much. Be kind to yourself. Take a couple hours. Watch.

You won’t regret it.
