How To Dress Well
Nico Muhly + Ira Glass
Money Mark + Ad-Rock
Ten of the country’s elite color guard teams—the flag-flipping, sequin-studded crème de la crème of the “sport of the arts”—sync steps with musical luminaries at Barclays Center for a bacchanalia of beats and sabre-spinning orchestrated by David Byrne. Each artist—Nelly Furtado, How To Dress Well, Devonté Hynes, Zola Jesus, Nico Muhly + Ira Glass, St. Vincent, tUnE-yArDs, Lucius, Ad-Rock + Money Mark, and Byrne himself—collaborates with an individual ensemble to provide a live original soundtrack to dazzling lockstep routines, bathed in the big-venue limelight.
