GOING LIVE: Conor Oberst


With an incredible catalogue spanning over 15 albums, it comes as no surprise that CONOR OBERST’s solo gig at Massey Hall would be a tender yet powerful showing of intricate songwriting. The Omaha instrumentalist picked up a guitar and took a seat as he dived into his solo work, a few new songs (“Kick”, “You Are Your Mother’s Child”) and the heavy-hearted classic Lifted Or The Story Is In The Soil, Keep Your Ear To The Ground. As much as Oberst tried to exhibit variety through piano works and a clever sense of humour, nothing was more invigorating than the sight of him painlessly influencing songs such as “Lua” and “Waste Of Paint” to blossom underneath the dim theatre lights.
