Last-minute plan: Talking Heads frontman David Byrne at the Bell House

This space is cramping my creativity.

Head over to the Bell House (149 7th St between Second and Third Aves, Gowanus, Brooklyn; 718-643-6510, to catch Talking Heads frontman David Byrne (pictured) as he presents a short audio/video lecture titled "Creation in Reverse" (8pm, free). Having been in front of a few crowds in his time, he'll explore the ways that venue and context often unconsciously influence a musician, artist or performer when they're up there doing their thing.

Byrne's theory makes perfect sense: A band could be great live, but if there's a lackluster audience the show probably won't seem that great. Hopefully he likes his surroundings tonight (that's where you come in).

Seats are first-come, first-served. Read more about the series from Jamie Hook, who saw the same show at Pete's Candy Store.
