The Dichotomy of The Homophones at FU Side Chapel June 22

The Dichotomy of The Homophones at FU Side Chapel June 22

David Byrne is my hero. I know him well. But how well can you really know someone that you've never met? I know him well enough to know that The Homophones’ Jason Ferraro knows him well as well. There is a certain theatrics in Farraro’s performance. It’s the kind of metamorphosis that Byrne would unfold on stage to his audience. And yes, some of those dance moves do look familiar. But with Malkovich-like intensity, he delivers classic gems like “you think you’re better than me/cause you got some fuckin’ degree/from a university like Emory” are lyrics worthy of the intellectual snobbery that it mocks. The Homophones’ music can sway, rock and enlighten you. It brings you back to the times when life was innocent and carefree, but it’s not afraid to slap you in the face with the uglier side of it, however, with a sense of humor. And that’s why you should be at the First Unitarian Side Chapel tonight. First Unitarian Side Chapel, 2125 Chestnut St., 8pm, $10, All Ages - Q.D. Tran
