David Byrne on Asheville

Musician David Byrne is a blogger, and he's Grade-A if you ask me. His most recent blog entry is about his tour's Sunday night stop here in Ashvegas at Thomas Wolfe.

David Byrne Journal: Asheville and Nashville
A lovely small town with a few schools tucked in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. The sweet pungent smell of North Carolina’s finest filled the air during the concert. The county also harbors a lot of money — a Vanderbilt mansion is open for tours at $47 a head, so we gave that a pass. Instead, a group of us — Natalie, Jenni, Lily, Steven and I — went for a bike ride on a road that goes through Biltmore Forest, passing one large house or mansion after another. A beautiful old one was for sale; we found an open basement window and took a look inside.

Byrne's (outstanding) blog is here. Here's an account of how much fun the band is having on tour that'll make you sorry you missed the fun on Sunday.
