Tickets for this show are on sale now!
Ultra-prolific indie wunderkind Conor Oberst and his star-kissed, Omaha-based band Bright Eyes are touring in conjunction with two new CDs that will be released on January 25 by Saddle Creek Records. Digital Ash in a Digital Urn reveals the more electric energy of Oberst's smart pop sound (reflecting his relocation to New York City). I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning furthers the folk-rock poetics and acoustic instrumentation at which he already excels.
At this concert, part of a tour of sit-down venues, Bright Eyes perform songs from I'm Wide Awake. Opening the show are CocoRosie, a sister duo whose ethereal and experimental approach to folk conjures a cracked poignancy, and tap-dancing songsters Tilly & The Wall, the first band signed to Oberst's own Team Love label.
Bright Eyes are poised for major success—advance singles from the new CDs immediately hit the #1 and #2 slots of Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart, an unprecedented feat for an indie band. Tickets for this concert are sure to be snapped up fast, so don't delay.
