Will's Pub is where we want to be when Start Making Sense performs their tribute to Talking Heads

We are torn in our recommendation of this show. On the one hand, we have very strong, long-held feelings about the Talking Heads; the band’s angular meld of art-damaged punk with multicultural rhythms drilled right into our souls upon first listen, and has been cherished through the years since; Talking Heads cover band Start Making Sense describes itself as “a rockin’, funkin’, danceable celebration” of the band, which … let’s just say we can’t imagine David Byrne loving that. But on the other hand, Talking Heads haven’t performed together in more than a decade, so this may be the only chance we have to experience a(nother) “live” Talking Heads show. Nostalgia wins: Like Jimmy Stewart creepily molding Kim Novak into his dead ex-lover, we gotta admit that sometimes a simulacrum is better than nothing. Thank you for sending me an angel?

Start Making Sense with DJ Prom Nite | 9 p.m. Thursday, May 7 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $10-$12
