Bright Eyes
9.30 Club Washington DC
Live on Jan 29, 2005

Boy wonder Conner Oberst offers an energetic live performance from a couple of weeks ago in Washington DC. He fronts Bright Eyes who were part of Bruce Springsteen's Vote For Change Tour last October. That tour gave the band much exposure with the mainstream crowd.

Bright Eyes currently have two albums simultaneously released - I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning and Digital Ash In A Digital Urn. Both are in Billboard's Top 20 bestselling albums chart. It's no small feat for a relatively new band.

Conner Oberst who is just 24, has been raved about as a "genius", with Rolling Stone calling him "King of Indie Rock" and has won attention for his prolific output - he started recording at the age of 12 and already has half a dozen albums - and distinctive singing style. He tends to over emote - sing/scream - breaking his voice in the process. He also writes highly detailed songs and is tune into current affairs [as on When The President Talks To God], hence his involvement in Vote For Change. Oberst also helped start Saddle Creek records which releases his albums.

This live concert at the 9.30 Club includes his pop hit, Lua, from the Wide Awake album.
