Byrnes Night - the brainchild of (Dundee native) Lola Stephen and Maddy O’Keefe, under their project Dancing Barefoot - is a celebration of Scotland’s two greatest poets Robert Burns and David Byrne (he was born in Dumbarton look it up!) Starting in 2023 at Hackney’s glittery Moth Club, with supergroup Byrne-adjacent cover sets and Burns poems in-between, the show sold out in a matter of days and amassed a four digit waitlist. After a very successful second year, the tribute went on to close the second stage at this year's Wide Awake festival and is now coming to Green Man Festival in August. Hosted by drag royalty Ash Kenazi, the camp, beautiful chaos and collaboration en masse is more than just a tribute; it’s truly the embodiment of 'Stop Making Sense’.
