Setlist = David Byrne @ Davies Symphony Hall, SF (10/7/08)

David Byrne (Talking Heads) returned to Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco for his second performance in two days, showcasing his body of songs constructed with famed producer and electronic musician Brian Eno. Byrne's voice has improved over the years - cue the cliche - like fine wine, and his four-piece instrumental backing band (plus three vocalists) were top notch at bolstering his set.

Speaking of which, here's the setlist (not too different from the previous night):
