This Thursday, Oct. 15, singer-songwriter Conor Oberst will perform at the Bluebird in support of his most recent solo album, 2014’s Upside Down Mountain. Oberst, who has released albums as part of Bright Eyes, supergroup Monsters of Folk, and punk rock outfit Desaparecidos, has still found time to release a series of albums under his own name. Oberst uses his voice, an often frail, quivering instrument, to evoke melancholy mixed with populist political sentiments. In that sense, and especially in conjunction with the folk trappings that adorn his music, Oberst has been called “The New Dylan” by more than a few critics. Whether or not that’s true, Oberst’s critical acclaim is well-deserved, and fans can expect to hear material from all of his projects during his set this Thursday.
Find out for yourself is Conor Oberst is “The Next Dylan”. Even if you disagree, he’ll win you over anyways.
The show is 21+. Tickets are $25-$30. Doors open at 7p.m., and the show will begin at 8 p.m. There are no slated opening acts.
