Hey, Dude! Yes, Jeff Bridges won his best-actor Oscar for playing a country singer in "Crazy Heart," but he also happens to sing in real life. He and his band The Abiders (a cutely winking reference to "The Big Lebowski," of course) just started a 13-date East Coast tour. That tour will include a Sept. 5 concert at Mohegan Sun's Wolf Den. Admission is free for the 8 p.m. show. Bridges and The Abiders have been doing some live shows since the release of Bridges' 2011 self-titled album on Blue Notes Records. That country-rock CD was produced by T Bone Burnett. The Sun website quotes Bridges as saying that album "is a natural extension of the love of music I've had all my life."
