Musician David Byrne wrote a blog post as a follow-up to his visit to the Des Moines Social Club's opening on Saturday.

Byrne posted his speech notes and wrote about his long bike ride through what he calls "The Des." Byrne's speech centered on the opportunity that Des Moines has to create a vibrant cultural scene with the help of the Social Club.

Byrne, who played at the 80/35 music festival last year, created a buzz with a July blog post he wrote that Des Moines "may not be cool, but it might be beyond cool."
