Bobby Long at Arlene’s Grocery

Last night Bobby Long played two shows are Arlene’s Grocery where people like  Jeff Buckley and the Black Crows have played.  The first show was for the press that he had met with earlier in the day.  The second show he played to a large, enthusiastic crowd of fans.  In case you are interested there is a fansite, The Land of Dreamers, is dedicated to the music of Bobby Long, Sam Bradley, and Marcus Foster.

I can’t say enough good things about Bobby’s performances.  He is an amazing guitarist. Many of the people around me were commenting about things he could do with a guitar and still be focused singing.  His voice is hard to describe.  I want to say there is a texture to it but every word I think of, smokey, raspy, doesn’t quite do it justice.   You’ll just have to listen for yourself and tell me what you think.  He is amazing to see live.  I highly suggest checking out his myspace to listen to all his songs and if he is coming to a town near you stop in and check out his show.

Bobby can been seen in LA at Hotel Cafe on 4/16 and the 18th (21+) and Whiskey a Go Go on the 17th, all ages show.  Then in Nashville at 3rd and Lindsey Bar and Grill on the 22nd and 23rd (18+).

There is a video below of him performing last night.  The first song was recorded during the first show and isn’t the best visually but the sound is good.  The second and third songs were recorded during the second show.  The recordings don’t do him nearly enough justice but I hope I you can get a sense of how good he really is.

For some reason in this video the names of the songs overlapped.  This song is called Dead and Done. And yes, I know it cuts off about the last 20 seconds of the song but the song itself was too good to scrap altogether. So enjoy!
