I came, I saw, I was disappointed

I read your pre-review [“Know Thy Beehive,” Aug. 1] of the B-52’s show in Mountain Xpress the day after the show. I’m 54, so I’m old enough to have listened to the B-52’s when they were recording on vinyl and playing “Rock Lobster” and “Private Idaho” in clubs.

I live in Raleigh. I didn’t drive to Asheville specifically for this show, but the show occurred on a weekend I would be there—so I went.

Please tell someone at Biltmore the show was disappointingly short. They will lose business for performances like this if this continues. I heard from others that the Chicago show a few nights earlier was about two hours long and was much better in a lot of ways.

Are you doing a post-review of the show?

    Perhaps it had something to do with the heavy-handed behavior of the Biltmore security ‘police’, as described by a letter writer in another section of this issue of Mountain Express.
