Conor Oberst • singer-songwriter • Jonathan Wilson • Refried Ice Cream

A Feast for Folk Fans

Hipsters and folksters, both young and old, are invited to gather at Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW) on Tuesday, Sept. 23, for an all-ages Conor Oberst concert. Promoting his fifth solo album Upside Down Mountain on this coast-to-coast tour, fans can expect to hear more poignant musical poetry than ever before. Oberst will sing new songs like sleepy, indie-pop tune “Time Forgot,” bittersweet trip-down-memory-lane “You Are Your Mother’s Child” and even a few relative oldies like rowdy, foot-stomping number "I Don’t Want to Die (In the Hospital)." Originally of Bright Eyes, Oberst brings a quavery, campfire vocal quality and simple, comforting and impassioned guitar playing. His poetic lyrics—that make fans remember childhood and lost loves—are where Oberst shines the most, and he has won recognition as an expressive and subtle lyricist. Don’t bring your mosh gear; instead, bring a lighter (or a lighter-imitating smartphone app) to wave in the air and a few buddies to sway with. Tickets are $25, and opening acts Jonathan Wilson and Refried Ice Cream take the stage starting at 8pm. (Renée Chavez)
