David Byrne's Milwaukee travelogue
David Byrne was in town recently for a show at The Pabst Theater. While he was here, he hooked up with local musician and man about town Paul Finger. The story is all in Byrne's recent blog entry.
During what must have been a hectic day of touring around town, Finger -- you may remember him as frontman of bands like Wild Kingdom and Her Majesty's Secret Service -- took Byrne to the Milwaukee Art Museum, Satin Doll's Lounge on Fond du Lac Avenue, the East Side boat house in which he lives, and to the Tripoli Shrine west of Marquette on Wisconsin Avenue.
Of course, Byrne's former Talking Heads bandmate Jerry Harrison is a Milwaukee-area native. A trip to Harrison's boyhood home (and gift shop) was apparently not on the itinerary.
Read it all in Byrne's blog entry -- illustrated with his own photos -- at the link below.
What a great blog. I've always driven past Satin Doll's and wondered what it must be like inside.
