A (Bobby) Long Night

So we here at ATWIM have to confess something: while we actively follow the RPattz Music Possee—the holy trinity that is Bobby Long, Sam Bradley and Marcus Foster—on Twitter, we haven’t heard a ton of their music. Sure, sure, we support those crazy Brits in all their magical, musical endeavors. We just haven’t been lucky enough to see/hear them play.

Until last night.

After a couple weeks of emailing with his manager and grinding our teeth in giddy excitement, we got to see Bobby Long play at one of our fave ATL hipster joints. To be honest, we didn’t know what to expect. M has pretty snooty musical taste (or so she’d have you believe, but she does have a Paula Abdul record…and the New Kids greatest hits CD. That is, if A ever gave it back to her). And A was just excited to be that close to someone whose lips have most likely been on the same frothy pint glass as Rob’s. It’s like we were kissing him by association. (Not a stretch at all!)

Anyhoo, after a slight snafu about press passes at the door (editor’s note: Bobby’s show was well worth the $15 we weren’t supposed to pay, so we let it slide!), we entered the world of Bobby Long fandom. Which oddly included an eclectic group of rowdy Twi-moms, randy girl-on-girl couples and too-cool-for-school hipsters. Way to bridge the gaps, Bobby!

A spent the evening running around with her camera to add to her growing portfolio of too-many-Twi-photos. M hung with one of our fave boys, BJW, who had no idea what he was getting himself into, but agreed that Bobby put on a good show. 

We’re planning to run an actual review on the ATMusic site, but we’ll say this: British boys with plaid shirts, sultry voices and a guitar are really freaking hard to resist! And Bobby was no exception. He made the blues hot! And man did the crowd LOVE him! (Not that we blame them.) They knew every word to every song, cheered (inappropriately loud at times) every time he tried to speak, and steadfastly refused to move from their prime viewing locations in order to facilitate A’s shooting. (Thanks surly hipster girl for eventually sharing your wall space with me!)

Though we’re still thrilled that we got so close to someone who’s so close to RPattz, we gotta say: Bobby totally holds his own with talent (and hotness). And on that note, we’re gonna post some pics from last night. We’ll be joining you in staring at them while we listen to “Who Have You Been Loving” on repeat. 

PS A’s Photoshop isn’t working, so there’s no watermark on these. If you want to use them, fine, just give us a shout-out and post our link 🙂 Thanks!!
