Last Friday we saw Miranda July with David Byrne and Becky Stark at the New York Public Library.

Miranda July read some things from her short story book and told some real stories with fake audience participation. Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond sang three songs but none from the LD album. Then there was a break. Then David Byrne "interviewed" Miranda July, while showing many film clips and pictures. It was almost a more intellectual version of Chris Farley interviewing Paul McCartney.
Then Becky Stark played another song aided by David Byrne on guitar.

Here is a youtube Becky Stark performance that gives you an idea of how she was:
