“The story of BOBBY is marred in mystique and hazy hear-say. Once the front man of the group consisting of Tom Greenberg, Martin Zimmermann, Paolo Menuez, Julian Labat, Roby Moulton, and Molly Sarle (of Mountain Man), there is a legend behind BOBBY as the transforming figure of the group, yet absent for their shows and recordings. He is said to be the spiritual guide overseeing the group and their music, yet has not shown himself to the members since beginning the project with Tom Greenberg. To learn more about the tale of BOBBY, head on over to the band’s biography right HERE.” – Partisan Records

I think Bobby (the person) was spotted near the stage at Bowery Ballroom on Tuesday night checking our BOBBY (the band), or maybe that was just Kevin. BOBBY were playing Bowery Ballroom because they were opening for the Low Anthem. Pictures from their opening set are in this post.

BOBBY was excellent, but their set seemed way too short. Which is a good thing; I wished they’d played longer. The songs all moved along the same sonic template, infectious (lush?) drum and bass lines, electric guitar and keys providing the texture and then Molly Sarle’s Amelia Meath (who is also in Mountain Man and was filling in for Molly at this show)’s angelic voice drifting out and over everything. It was lovely stuff and I’d be shocked if they don’t garner more attention following their time at SXSW.

And SXSW is where you can see them next, BrooklynVegan/Partisan day party included. All dates, the cover art of their album which is coming out soon on Partisan Records (also the home of Mountain Man) (MP3 from that album above), and more pictures from Bowery Ballroom, below…
