Conor Oberst

July 28
7:30 p.m.
Americana, Folk, Rock, Singer-Songwriter

Whether playing solo or in one of his many bands (Commander Venus, Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, Monsters of Folk), Oberst’s songs always showcase his chatty confessional outpourings and the choked, forlorn catch in his voice. On the recent Better Oblivion Community Center, a duet album with Phoebe Bridgers, both songwriters entwine their voices to hit sharp contrasts at odd angles, using each other to test the limits of their melancholy. With Joanna Sternberg.
