The Dude is coming to SLO.
The son of actor Lloyd Bridges, Jeff Bridges has been acting since he was a baby. But his first major role was in The Last Picture Show in 1971.
Other films have included The Fisher King, Seabiscuit and the cult classic The Big Lebowski, in which he portrayed the Dude. His band name Jeff Bridges & The Abiders is an homage to that role.
While he has performed music since he was a child, most of the public didnt know until he portrayed a washed-up country star in Crazy Heart, in which he sang his own songs. The role also landed him an Academy Award.
Tickets for the show are $40 in advance and $45 at the door.
