Straightaway Cafe , 1722 NC Hwy 9 (South off I-40 Exit 64) , Black Mountain, NC (828-669-8856)

An acoustic afternoon at perhaps my favorite venue, a rustic roadhouse way out in the unspoiled upcountry of east Buncombe county... wonderful people, unexpectedly fabulous food, and an unparalleled atmosphere. Early show at one of the region's most unique and beautiful listening locations, up on Route 9 between Black Mountain and Bat Cave! Great brunch, cold beer (of course) and good music. C'mon up and enjoy the altitude!
