Conor Oberst, best known as the musical genius behind Bright Eyes, brings his solo material to The Triffid in early 2015.
As the frontman and songwriter for Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst has grown from critics’ darling to a commercial success story. In 2005 he released two albums that both reached the top 20 of the Billboard charts, and attracted a worldwide following for the band.
In the decade that has followed, he has released three solo albums alongside further records with Bright Eyes, the Mystic Valley Band, indie-supergroup Monsters of Folk and Desaparecidos.
His latest release, Upside Down Mountain, has been hailed by critics as his finest work to date, Rolling Stone Magazine calling it ‘the most immediately charming record he has ever made’ and had NME glowing that Oberst is ‘back to his sincere, melancholy best on his latest album’.
Australian fans can expect to hear tracks from Upside Down Mountain alongside songs from Oberst’s treasured back catalogue. Support will be provided from The Felice Brothers.
