David Byrne update

David Byrne has updated his tour diary to include his recent stop at the Carolina Theater in Durham (scroll down to entries for 9/18 and 9/19). No indication of whether it was a particularly good show or not, though the one before in Nashville was "one of the best received of the whole tour." Not sure what the history lesson about the Dukes is for (that's the tobacco baron Dukes, not the General Lee Dukes), and he probably wouldn't have included it at all if he'd realized that the Carolina Theater is actually not on Duke's campus.

I'd still love to hear music from the current tour -- any recordings available? In the meantime, here's a link to a Quicktime video of an old live performance:

VIDEO: "Help Me Somebody" Live on Sessions at West 54th.
(original recording on the great My Life in the Bush of Ghosts -- this version is very different, with a fantastic female vocalist -- well worth a listen!)
