(((folkYEAH!))) & Club Mercy present Conor Oberst & Friends along with very special guest Simone Felice. Conor Oberst is a prolific singer and songwriter who is best known for his with work in Bright Eyes. One of a long line of indie-rockers to be lulled by the siren song of Townes Van Zandt and Gram Parsons, Conor Oberst has been a true ramblin' man of late. I can't imagine what stylistic restrictions he felt like he had to rebel against in Bright Eyes, the project that made him famous. But rebel he has, in a way, getting looser and downright laid-back in projects like the supergroup Monsters of Folk and especially with his own Mystic Valley Band. The guy's always been a genius songwriter, but his delivery has improved steadily over the years, from unbearable (on that first record, at least) to divisive to…er, a lot less divisive. Maybe he doesn’t have the kind of voice or style that’s ever going to appeal to everyone, but hey, neither does Neil Young.
