To that end, AERONAUT is proud to announce a new SUMMER CONCERT FILM SERIES!

We'll be playing a few of the classic concert films on random Saturdays throughout the summer.

FIRST UP?

STOP MAKING SENSE by The Talking Heads!

Screenings at 8pm and 10pm – we'll have it on in the taproom, so either grab a chair and watch the film, or let David Byrne's futuristic dreamscape wash over your ears in the background.

Here's what the great film critic Pauline Kael said for The New Yorker upon the film's release in 1984:

"Stop Making Sense" makes wonderful sense. A concert film by the New York new-wave rock band Talking Heads, it was shot during three performances at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in December, 1983, and the footage has been put together without interviews and with very few cutaways. The director, Jonathan Demme, offers us a continuous rock experience that keeps building, becoming ever more intense and euphoric. This has not been a year when American movies overflowed with happiness; there was some in "Splash", and there's quite a lot in "All of Me"—especially in its last, dancing minutes. "Stop Making Sense" is the only current movie that's a dose of happiness from beginning to end. The lead singer, David Byrne, designed the stage lighting and the elegantly plain performance-art environments (three screens used for backlit side projections); there's no glitter, no sleaze. The musicians aren't trying to show us how hot they are; the women in the group aren't there to show us some skin. Seeing the movie is like going to an austere orgy—which turns out to be just what you wanted.

See you in the taproom!
