Conor Oberst

Ben Kweller opened for Conor Oberst & The Mystic Valley Band at their two shows at Terminal 5 in NYC over the weekend. Ben also returned to the stage during Conor's set to join them for a cover of Paul Simon's "Kodachrome".

On Monday Conor and band played Washington DC. That entire show is streaming at NPR. Last night Conor played Conan O'Brien (video anyone?). Back in August, Conor played an in-store at Other Music in NYC. You can watch the video of that at OM's site. More Terminal 5 pictures (night 2), and a setlist (from night 1), below...

You feel old??? I had tickets to go to this but didn't because I was too tired on a Saturday night. Now that's old.

Did go to Jonah yesterday though. Great show. I find it's easier to motivate during the week after work than to get ready after a day of lounging around and doing errands.

Sigh.

This show was absolutely fanastic! It is very impressive that an artist such as Oberst can amass such a vast & rich catalogue of material, then decide to do away with it, and come up with all new top notch material for a full show of amazing new music to perform. The dynamic of the new band worked well. I especially liked the songs that Conor didn't sing. I very much liked Mr. Kweller's new tunes as well.

I once did an interview with Conor. Funny guy.

whatever you want to say about the guy, he makes a fine living recording music and playing it live.

Has a hot wife and a cute kid.

The sound at that place was so bad it pretty much ruined the concert. I saw Oberst and MVB in Austin, where they were beautiful, and I could barely tell it was the same material.

Also, why was there a rap group opening for this show? In what world did that make sense? I felt bad for the guy when the only applause he got was for saying "this is our last song," but really, that was a strange choice of opener.

It would've been ok i guess, if it was a decent rap group... but those guys were terrible. to be fair, the sound wasnt very good and i could barely understand a word that the MC was saying but, .... not my cup of tea before alt/folk/country whateverr

the rap group opened up because they are on team love (conor's label) and the mc is conor's cousin ian. i think he was in desaparecidos too.

Not the band, i really like. Their music is kind of weird for me. And the quality of the sound at the concert wasn't good enough.
