Because Songs Matter

IF YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT, WE'RE ALL BOBBY AT SOME POINT:

I was Bobby at a William Elliott Whitmore show once…how pathetic is that?

    I was Bobby at a Austin Lucas, Two Cow Garage show. That really sucks! They all played like it was a packed house though. Great show!

      I was almost Bobby at an Austin Lucas/Glossary show late last year….

      I was a Bobby the first time I saw Two Cow Garage at the WWT back in ’07. I’ve convinced a few more people to come out since.

    I was Bobby at a Stone Temple Pilots show in Hollywood when they were still Mighty Joe Young…about a year before they broke…they played it like it was a stadium.

    I was Bobby at a Jason And The Scorchers Show in the late 80s and also at an Uncle Tupelo/Bottle Rockets show in the Early 90s. Both were in Indianapolis. I’ve also played to Bobby a few times, but we won’t me mention that.

    I was Bobby at the ninebullets SXSW 2011 day party (Glossary, Caitlin Rose, etc). I expect I’ll be Bobby again soon.

    I was Bobby at a free Drag the River / Two Cow Garage show in Ybor during Guavaween. People wanted to see Gwar.

    Oh yeah! I was totally Bobby at a Lonesome Wyatt & Rachel Brooke show once too….

    I was Bobby at a show that *I* booked. Herman Put Down the Gun (Sonia Tetlow) in the basement of a dorm at my college. Apparently you need to supply free alcohol for college kids to show up to a concert. Lame sauce.

    It would have been the most embarrassing day of my life if I hadn’t kissed my first girlfriend for the first time earlier.

    I was Bobby for Joe Pug when he opened for Justin Townes Earle in Toronto. I got there a little late and just walked up in front of everybody and stood right there. Some hipster A-hole told me to sit down. LOL. Being Bobby rules.

    David Dondero and Franz Nicolay at the Firebird… I won the tickets off of KDHX, it was my birthday show too… I think there was a handful of people to see Franz Nicolay and then left when he was done. Dondero keep committing about a Matt&Kim show across town. I stood right up front and bought them drinks when i went to get one. Rockin on Bobby’s, Rockin on…

    Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown in Omaha in the 80’s. Sat on a chair in front of the band. Evan Johns and the H Bombs in Omaha about the same time. He was late and drunk, but played like the place was packed.

    Back when Two Cow Garage was just a little kid, I was Bobby at a show in Tuscarawrus, Ohio. There are only 12 people in the whole town. To their credit, TCG has always played like the place was packed.

    I was kinda Bobby when I saw The Weight in Wilkes-Barre, PA. I say “kinda” cause there was some twenty-something girl’s birthday party happening and they were doing your typical twenty-something girl’s birthday party things totally independent of the band’s performance. Lots of “woooooooo”-ing and cosmos.

    I was Bobby at a WEW show too (in Vancouver). thankfully after like 4 songs Ben Nichols came out and stood there with me.

      Hanging out with Ben makes everything better. I’m seeing WEW and Lucero in Dallas in a few weeks. I hope I’m not a Bobby.

    I was Bobby at a Little Feat show in Pittsburgh in the late 80s. I had seen the reunited band so many times that the set list got pretty boring. Kenny Gradney was doing his slick dancing and ignoring my “requests” to play something different. I had to give him the finger.
