Can you believe there are still tickets available for Conor Oberst's show on Wednesday (June 4) at the Sokol Auditorium? There are.
The Omaha-rooted folk-rocker is currently riding high on a buzz wave of rave reviews coming in for his latest album, Upside Down Mountain, which the Wall Street Journal says has a "nice, airy feel reminiscent of the folk-rock music that came out of Los Angeles in the late 1960s and early '70s."
You can get a sample of Oberst's latest solo project by watching the new video to the song "Zigzagging Toward the Light," which he sang a couple weeks ago on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. If you've seen Her with Joaquin Phoenix, the opening to this 6-minute black-and-white clip has that vibe before it charges into the song, the first single from the new album.
