Tonight: Bobby Long at the Bluebird

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.
