I have been disappointed in Conor Oberst for years now and the last two times I’ve seen him live I’ve not been thrilled. It is six years since I caught him at the tiny “Other Music” and longer still since his residency at the Town Hall. So Conor at Summerstage on Tuesday: why is it a pick of the week? Because it’s Conor Oberst, that’s why.
Two great shows are playing New York in the immediate future and these are so close to a must see that one is gonna force me to go out on a Sunday (something I truly truly hate doing), and the other will find me on the Upper West Side!!
