Cary Brothers 

9 p.m. Wednesday, August 15. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room, 6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City

The irreverent, surreal sitcom Scrubs has had many fine musical moments. And while nothing can top Turk dancing to Bell Biv DeVoe's "Poison," Cary Brothers' swoon-worthy performance of "Blue Eyes" comes pretty dang close. The song is spare and beautiful, and Brothers' popularity soared after his buddy Zach Braff also placed "Blue Eyes" on the monstrously successful Garden State soundtrack. But this Nashville-born singer/songwriter isn't clinging to the coattails of his famous friend. Brothers' lush, romantic, winningly sincere music stands on its own — his debut LP, the recently released Who You Are, is a pleasure. He's not reinventing the wheel, but he's also not cheesin' it up (take notes, Coldplay and the Fray). Brothers' songs would be the perfect soundtrack to a third date, a snowy afternoon — or maybe a surprisingly poignant show about life in a hospital.
