Conor Oberst at Brewery Ommegang

conor oberst

Another summer concert: Conor Oberst is set to play at a show at Brewery Ommegang August 1. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 25 -- they're $35 in advance / $15 for camping, in advance.

Oberst will be backed by the band Dawes. And the openers -- The Baseball Project -- include a few people you might recognize: Peter Buck and Mike Mills, among others.

Oberst played a show at The Egg in 2012 and it sold out. Obviously the field at Ommegang is bigger than that theater, but if you're interested in going, getting tickets sooner rather than later might not be a bad idea. (See: Modest Mouse.)

This is great news! I was so bummed I couldn't make it to the Egg show.

Anyone who was there...how was that show? Was it mostly his new/solo stuff? Did he do any Bright Eyes stuff?

ACW - I was at the Egg show - it was a pretty healthy combination of songs spanning his entire career - plenty of Bright Eyes songs, a few off his more recent Conor Oberst /Mystic Valley Band releases, and I think there was a song or two that were off of his random band releases (of which I'm not completely familiar with so I'm not positive).

The concert was very good, but a pretty reserved/intimate show that he did mostly solo, occasionally playing with one guy from his band accompanying him on random instrumentation. I'd be very interested in seeing him again with a full band like Dawes.
