A man who embodies The Center’s Renaissance-like assortment of performers, Grammy winner David Byrne, kicks off the season with a show that’s likely to live up to “Burning Down the House” expectations. “Indie rock’s patron saint,” according to The New York Times, the former Talking Heads front man bring his show, David Byrne on Tour: Songs of David Byrne and Brian Eno in to town on Oct. 11, 2008.

The season will end on a thought-provoking note with best-selling author and contributing editor for NPR’s “This American Life,” Sarah Vowell, on April 18, 2009.
