It only takes a moment.

Before you comment

The comments section is here to provide a platform for civil dialogue on the issues we face together as a local community. Xpress is committed to offering this platform for all voices, but when the tone of the discussion gets nasty or strays off topic, we believe many people choose not to participate. Xpress editors are determined to moderate comments to ensure a constructive interchange is maintained. All comments judged not to be in keeping with the spirit of civil discourse will be removed and repeat violators will be banned. See here for our terms of service. Thank you for being part of this effort to promote respectful discussion.

    Really? His tunes are atrocious. I know I’m not the only one that thinks this…

    Buddy? toss off ya barf bag.
    Listened to Bobby for 10 plus years, he is Sheville.
    You are “atrocious” with bad mouthing a wonderful member of Sheville’s downtown ambiance.
    Even though I left six years ago because I saw Sheville bowing to corporate asinine developers and making it impossible for true Ashevillians to own their roots. Glad I got out, because the place can trap you, but I’d still love to visit now and again.

    If I hear Bobby Sax play “Roxanne” one more time I’m gonna beat my self to death on the flat iron. He is “Sheville”, I guess, in so much as the town is full of musicians who only know ten songs. And if Jane thinks Asheville has gone corporate, I’d love to hear what socialist utopia she’s living in now– Shelby??
