Set times for Conor Oberst?

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2012 10:21 AM

Remember last time Dylan played at Prospect Park, Conor played at Bowery?

I hear Bob is in rare form these days. I hope Barclays doesn't sound as bad as I anticipate.

Bob blew the roof off the Cap a few months ago. Shit was tight.

Barclays has a bigger roof

Remember when people thought Conor Oberst was the next Bob Dylan? Ha! What a riot. By the time Bob was 25 he had released FreeWheelin', Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde. What did Conor do by that age? Oh boy he released 'Bowl of Oranges', kick ass!

The press said the same shit about Beck in 1996. Again they were wrong, Wrong, WRONG! Let people develop a career and dedicated following before the labels get tossed around. #ClownShoes

Cassadaga killed the Bright Eyes moniker forever. It was a lame follow up to two really good albums in Digital Ash and Wide Awake. Plus M. Ward became more trendy in the press by 2007 anyway.

Can't decide between Om and Dylan. Dylan's vocals just seem so cringeworthy on the live videos from shows over the past 2+ years.

Oh my god Conor Oberst is touring!!! What is this 2002?!?!? File this under shit nobody cares about anymore.

Where has Conor been lately? In his digital urn?

apparently some people care 12:42. Dude headlined two nights at Radio City just last year to what i believe is 11,000 people and looks like sold out Carnegie Hall just tonight. What have you been doing?

It's one thing to see Bob Dylan mumbling through his half-assed set in a theatre, but in an arena? There's just no way that can be good.

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2012 1:37 PM

What's the difference between a Bright Eyes album and his solo releases? Nothing. Same shit, different year.

Things that will never be said in 10 years:

"I started a band because of Conor Oberst."

Posted by Anonymous | November 21, 2012 1:46 PM

Fact: I've never met a Bright Eyes fan.

Anybody else find it strange Conor dated Winona Ryder? I mean they looked like brother and sister for crying out loud! However, Rydee has some fantastically big tits.

Seen Bright Eyes close to 20 times in my life, and can honestly say that last night was the best Conor Oberst affiliated show I have seen since the I'm Wide Awake it's morning tour.

^ Great, now it is time for you to realize what a dum dum you are, how you have no life and should just end it.

Posted by Anonymous | November 22, 2012 10:14 AM

I feel bad and pity a person who says they have seen Bright Eyes close to 20 times

I accidentally saw conor in Philly last weekend. I went to see Daniel Johnston, who opened, and somehow I had forgotten how ridiculous bright eyes had been.

I only stayed for a handful of songs, but it was an amazing experience. In a train-wreck kind of way, of course. The venue was packed, and these kids were not there to see Daniel. they were mostly mid 20s, I guess, so they would have been in high school when bright eyes got popular? Maybe it's a nostalgia thing then. Except a lot of them seemed to know the new stuff, which was like the old stuff but without any hooks, which of course was the only good thing about the old stuff.

The audience would erupt in cheers after conor let loose one of his platitude-laden lines in overtly dramatic fashion. That was kind of expected, but the funny thing was, the audience reactions seemed to be to some of the most banal lines -- if you asked me to predict when the audience would cheer, I would have totally failed. It was like an audience at a standup laughing at random lines BEFORE the punch line.

Anyway, interesting in an anthropological way, but not an experience I'd suggest to anybody else, especially if you have to pay for it.
