Conor w/ Desaparecidos at Voodoo Fest 2013 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Conor

Conor Oberst, the brains behind Bright Eyes who also lends his talents to Desaparecidos, Monsters of Folk and others, is back in solo mode this year for his new album, Upside Down Mountain, which comes out next week (5/20) via Nonesuch. Check it out before the official release date by streaming the album in full over at NPR.

We already knew Conor's tour with Dawes hits the NYC-area on May 22 at The Space at Westbury and July 29 at Central Park Summerstage (not to mention a Cooperstown show with The Baseball Project), and since then Conor added an intimate release show for Upside Down Mountain happening at Rough Trade NYC (5/20) the day of the album's release. Tickets for that show are $20 at the door. You can still get advance tickets for their other NYC-area shows.

Conor will also be in NYC to perform on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on May 19.

Updated dates are listed, with a couple streams from the album, below...

I like it. Looks less like an emo wimp now.

It's all pizza and beer from indie rock city boyz... until they get fat.

I just came all over my desk because of that pic.

THANKS A LOT!

He's not fat. I saw Desaparecidos on the same tour that pic was taken and he looks pretty much the same as 10 years ago.

THANKS ! I just came all over 1:50's face because of that pic !!!

City boyz like their musicians thin. Hahahahahaha - cute and fussy... and skinny.

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 15, 2014 2:19 PM

Post city boyz I meant. My apologies to city boyz.

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 15, 2014 2:25 PM

Please explain the difference between a city boy and a post city boy.

Posted by Anonymous | May 15, 2014 2:30 PM

I would assume a post-city boyz comes after a city boyz. Just my take.

Posted by E.L. Fudge | May 15, 2014 3:04 PM

But he started attributing the traits that originally assigned to city boyz to 'post' city boyz. Makes no sense.

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 15, 2014 2:25 PM please explain yourself.

If you moved to the big town after Show World completely closed down, you're a Post City Boy. You only know the city as a cute and fussy place.

Regular old city boyz knew good times but they've developed cute habits that won't allow for further evolution. They're stuck like ratz and they're finks.

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 15, 2014 3:10 PM

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 15, 2014 3:10 PM thanks for the clarification. But you got to get a better naming system. 'Post' city boy reads like it is referring to those who have moved out of the city. Newly minted suburbanites with toddlers, and car notes, and burgeoning guts.

He's still a rapist though, right?

I will be raising the cost of subway rides starting in February, I just hired a contractor to install a new bidet in my indoor swimming pool. Just letting you guys know. ;-)

I once made out with a dog on the street for 20 bucks. I then realized listerine costs 8 bucks before taxes....

this is the lead singer for the red hot chili peppers right???

Posted by Sweet Potato Fries | May 15, 2014 4:27 PM

@4:10 I don't think so, what do you think? Did you read the law suit?

I hope this doesn't affect my salamander breeding business, but I named one of my newborn salamanders Rod Stewart and now it's being a REAL dick.

If I was still patrolling those cute streets I'd make a citizen's arrest on most post city boyz for nothing-near-rape.

Posted by Mr. Foot Fetish | May 15, 2014 4:47 PM

I once gave my ex-girlfriend herpes and she was totally okay with it. I had to break up with her though because I was NOT okay with her being okay with getting that herp.

Guys, tried not to get sued in here.

This guy was kind of fascinating when he was a kid trying to work through some probable mental illness on record.

Who knew he'd get better and grow into this talentless turd?

I'm already in line for rough trade. I can hardly contain myself.
