David Lynch Does Duran Duran

David Lynch took a stab at live webcasting last night, directing a streaming broadcast of Duran Duran’s concert from the Mayan in Los Angeles. We’re gonna say, short of sending creepy old people on stage to do esoteric things, he did the best he could. Mostly that involved superimposing effects and images on top of the live concert feed.

Rolling Stone‘s Steve Appleford says Lynch’s cameramen were roaming the stage throughout the entire concert, which we would imagine would be pretty annoying. But it didn’t seem to bother Appleford too much, as he called the concert “spectacular.”

Check out the whole show here if the above track isn’t your favorite. We have to admit, “Girls on Film” was pretty spectacular indeed.
