Who Is Bobby? (Opening For The Low Anthem Tonight)

When the opener for tonight’s Low Anthem show at SPACE was announced, there was a bit of a collective “Who?”

Bobby – “Sore Spores

We have little to go on in terms of musical output beyond this single, though there is a Facebook page, an official site, and a Twitter account. The band is signed to Partisan Records (home to Deer Tick, Mountain Man, Doloreon, Warm Ghost) and touring with The Low Anthem (including tonight’s show at SPACE Gallery – buy tickets) and appearing at SXSW in a couple weeks. Their debut self-titled album comes out June 21. The Montague, MA-based psych/folk 5-piece (including Molly Sarle of labelmates Mountain Man contributing vocals) apparently worships/follows/lives in fear of someone named Bobby, who serves as the inspiration behind their music. We’ll all learn more tonight at the show.
