Thrilling! Inspiring! Phenomenal performance by David Byrne and direction by Spike Lee!

What an experience to introduce the little ones to this wonderful singer and see them tapping along to this great talent! A fun, politically inspiring musical good time! The entire family will enjoy! There’s an F bomb around :50 in, so be wary of that but otherwise, bravo!!!
