Robert DeLong is everything!
I first heard Robert DeLong a few years ago without knowing his name, who he was, or how much I would actually come to love his music. In 2018 he patterned on a duet with K. Flay, who I am obsessed with, on a song called "Favorite Color Is Blue." So, when the opportunity to cover one of shows came up, I jumped at the chance.
The opening act was Day Tvvo. It was originally supposed to be Grabbitz, who I was really looking forward to seeing and covering, but something happened, and he was replaced with Day Tvvo. I wasn't terribly excited about the change because I had not heard of them before. They were supposed to take the stage at 8:30, but when 8:40 rolled around and the stage was still empty, I went outside for some fresh air. I honestly wasn't even going to photograph them or talk about them in my review. They were mid-song when I came back inside, and within a few seconds of hearing them, seeing them, I very quickly moved to the front of the stage to start photographing them. I didn't even think about it. It wasn't even a choice at that point. I couldn't help it. I needed to shoot them. I needed to talk about them. People needed to know about them.
When I started writing my review, I went to their website for the standard research like verifying how to spell their names, and something odd caught my attention: there were three members listed on the website, but only two members on stage this night. Where did the other fellow go? A mystery that may never be solved.
I can't even say enough about Robert DeLong. He is, by far, the most impressive man I have ever seen on stage. He is not only incredibly talented, but he was super fun.
