Bobby Long Shaking at Mama Java's on Monday
If you were one of the countless Americans to shell out anywhere from eight to eleven bucks a pop (and contribute to its near $200 million gross) to see the film version of the Young Adult book sensation Twilight, there's a great chance you heard English musician Bobby Long's song "Let Me Sign" in the background of some blood-sucking scene (Albiet being sung by the movie's star, Robert Pattinson). And if you're one of the few Phoenix (and surrounding areas) residents who plam to be at Mama Java's Coffee House this Monday evening at 8 p.m., there's an equally as great chance you will hear this very same song while sipping on your oversized mocha or chai latte. Here's a sample of what this classy Brit sounds like:Bobby is not just some chap who decided to pick up a guitar. Long is a recent graduate of London Metropolitan University. Phoenix is the ninth stop on his Dangerous Summer tour. And on a fitting note, he'll be ending his summer tour about when the summer comes to an end on September 12th at The Bitter End in New York City.
