It took BobbyLong to make fashion photographer MegUrbani and me in-person friends. We had already tweeted for a while, but when Bobby’s show at Joe’s Pub was announced, we coordinated and bought tickets.
I feel like I have known Meg a long time because we’ve had lots of fun seeing bands and drinking in bars together. Even now that we’ve been friends for a little while, I remain in awe of her photography. It’s crazy to me that I know someone so talented in that art form.
OneChicklette: Your favorite qualities in a love interest
@MegUrbani: Has a sense of humor, not afraid to be dorky, doesn’t take himself too seriously, a bit of a nerd, oh and great hair and a great smile. Also being British doesn’t hurt. Just saying 🙂
I remember when I first heard the Black Keys two or three years ago. The sound was different from other bands I had been listening to. Brothers grabbed my attention, and held it.
Imagine my surprise when I learned via @aestheticsgirl that the Black Keys weren’t some new band on the scene. On the contrary, there were five whole previous studio releases to check out plus live albums, collaborations and other stuff.
I like to think that somewhere down the line, a new fan of Bobby Long‘s will learn that there’s an album called A Winter Tale that came out in February of 2011. It’s a gem that surely brought him additional fans, but deserved to be a bigger hit in my opinion.
Here’s a live version of one of my favorite tracks, Who Have You Been Loving.
