Rolling Stone Profiles Durham's John Darnielle

"If you stayed here for a week you would think about moving here," Darnielle says as we drive around downtown Durham... Darnielle points out the farmers market, Dame's Chicken and Waffles ("the best restaurant in the South") and the Carolina Theatre, which he talks about like he's gunning for a spot on the Chamber of Commerce. "It's probably my favorite place on the planet," he says. "Built in 1926. They have a monthly horror festival that I'm a big supporter of called Retrofantasma. They also have one of the biggest North American documentary film festivals, Full Frame, and an annual horror festival called Nevermore.""
