Bright Eyes recently came through Kansas City, Milwaukee and will be in Columbia in August. I'm happy for them, but sad for me because I keep missing their epic shows! It's such a tease. Therefore, I've been following them on the interwebs - because that's my only choice. A couple weeks ago they were on The Tonight Show performing "Beginner's Mind," which happens to be one of my favorite new tracks.
Conor and the band were also recently featured on NPR's World Cafe, which was a treat. It's nice to get some background about The People's Key and hear an in-depth interview with Oberst and Mogis about Saddle Creek's motives. They even sneak in "Lua" at the end.
