Conor Oberst+Ian Felice
From Bright Eyes and Desaparecidos to his latest work with the Mystic Valley Band, Oberst’s work has almost always been a solo vision. On this tour, however, he’s even announcing himself as suchso prepare for a diverse set list. Now past the point of using his angst-ridden shaky vocals as a crutch, Oberst can offer a little bit of everything: Expect endearing self-hatred, folk-driven political rants, alt-country crowd pleasers, hazy electro-pop, and as always, that emotional extremism we hate to love (and vice-versa).
