Gawker - "One-Man Band David Homyk"
Thursday, 20 December 2007 19:00

Debriefer: One-Man Band David Homyk

While he's stationed in the city that never sleeps, musician David Homyk can be found onstage charming crowds with his pop songs. No matter where New York takes him, Homyk's still a southern boy at heart and loves his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia, and its addictive hangover remedies.

Gawker: We're going to imprison you in the city of your choice for the rest of your natural life. You can do anything you want there, but you must stay in that city forever. Where would you choose?

David: Charlottesville, VA.

Gawker: Why would you live in this city forever and not somewhere else?

David: The natural and social environments are maximally conducive to the unadulterated expression of the human spirit in its freest form. It's ideal for hit song writing.

Gawker: In what part of the city would you reside?

David: I would live downtown in the Woolen Mills/Belmont district, which captures the Zeitgeist of the 1950s characterized by the union of residential and commercial real estate. After that, cities bifurcated into Urban-Suburban, and America started making the structural transition into commuter culture. Again, the vibe is just perfect of writing masterpiece hit songs.

Gawker: Where and what would you eat?

David: I would gorge myself on Mexican, Italian, or general comfort foods. Best local recommendations are Guadalajara, Anna's Pizza #5, Blue Light Grill, Bodo's, C&O, and Gravity Lounge.

Gawker: What would you do for fun?

David: Bonfire parties; 20-foot-high fire 'smore 'n beer gatherings in wide open farm land at night featuring crowds of hundreds of all sorts of individuals and dozens of back to back live bands. [There's also] night tubing; riding tractor inner tubes down river stretches in small groups in the dead of night (it's dangerously high-performance, please be mostly sober). [Virginia's also great for] motorcycling. The city actually has highway stretches famous for some of the best biking on the East Coast.

Gawker: Where would you go for a night on the town?

David: Lot's of spots. Biltmore Grille, Buddhist Biker Bar, Michael's Bistro, South Street Brewery, Gravity Lounge, Blue Light, Rapture, Coupe DeVilles, Orbit Billiards and Cafe, O'Neill's, and have breakfast and a bottomless coffee at The Tavern.

Gawker: What kinds of shops are worth going to?

David: There's great health food/supplement shopping, wine, and vintage clothes digging in Charlottesville. That captures the vibe of the place.

Gawker: And on the flip side, what city would you never, ever visit again, if you had a choice?
