Nationally touring Talking Heads tribute band Start Making Sense recreates director Jonathan Demme’s critically ­acclaimed film Stop Making Sense live on stage in Baker Hall.  Released on April 24, 1984, Stop Making Sense was filmed during the group’s three ­night stand at Hollywood’s famous Pantages Theatre. Utilizing innovative camera techniques, the concert featured the influential Rock and Roll Hall of Famers performing hits such as Psycho Killer, Burning Down the House, Once in a Lifetime and their New Wave take on Al Green’s Take Me to the River.  Start Making Sense singer Jon Braun promises a “once in a lifetime” concert experience for fans. “We’re very excited to be recreating Stop Making Sense in a live setting. It’s widely regarded as one of the best concert films of all time." Click HERE for artist's website.
