Bridges is one of those multi-talents that include being a fantastic photographer. His on-set black and white photos make us truly covet his unusual Wide-Lux camera. But, we were unfamiliar with the extent of his musical chops. Or, even that he writes his own songs. He'll be performing those compositions on Friday, April 19 at the Chrome Showroom at Santa Fe Station. And, the next night, April 20, in the Rocks Lounge at Red Rock Casino. Local troubadour Michael Grimm has been working that lounge in recent months.
Last time we encountered Mr. Bridges was at a press conference for Tron: Legacy. He was, um, relaxed. And, before that at a press junket for The Fisher King. He was, um, relaxed. But, there is a zen quality about the man that we find interesting in interviews. As for his music, we imagined a folk slash country vibe before we started Googling for video clips. And, we weren't far off. So, here's a taste of what to expect. Tickets go on sale Friday for both venues. Considering the location, prices are comparable to the Strip, ranging from $45.00 to $73.50. But, legends don't come cheap.
