Tonight: Bobby Long at the Bluebird
Bobby, Bobby! Sign our back, too!
Oh, Bobby Long, how hard we swoon for you. If it wasn't for the first Twilight soundtrack, we might have never discovered your gruff, Southern-by-way-of-London voice, perfect for carrying songs of heartbreak and seasonal love.
This accidental heartthrob self-released his first few albums before being picked up by Dave Matthews's ATO Records, for which Long put out an EP in 2010 and his full-length debut for the label, this month's Winter's Tale. It seems that even after all of the Twilight-related attention, Long maintains a bashful stage persona, subtly flashing his perfect smile from underneath a pile of perfectly tousled brown hair. Tonight's show at the Bluebird is sixteen-and-up, and tickets are $14-$16. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show starts at 8.
