Sorry for my abscence the past couple of days (or 1 day). I had some major art projects I was finishing up. Tonight I am seeing Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band for the second time this year. I know that a lot of people have a love-hate relationship with Mr. Oberst, but I think he is one of the finest songwriters around. Every song he writes feels like a novel, a well told story. Live, Conor and the boys are super tight, so I’m looking forward to seeing them again. Ben Kweller is opening, who I also heard is sort of putting out a country sounding record soon. It should be interesting to hear the new songs live. I wonder if Oberst and Kweller will do a duet tonight. Maybe. I heard last night they did ‘Ghostbusters’ together. Oh, oh my….
