Conor Oberst: House of Blues
Friday night, Conor Oberst tour through his catalog of songs at the House of Blues. At this point, with two decade’s worth of material, each concert can be a veritable “greatest hits” and this night was no disappointment. Bright Eyes songs followed new material from last year’s Upside Down Mountain. All the while, the audience sang along, with the occasional lifted hands reaching out toward Oberst. What is impressive that each time these songs seem fresh and new, whether they are from this year or 1995. The good news? He’ll be back in Boston with his other band, Desaparecidos, in just a few short weeks. Not a bad way to bookend the summer.
