Whether he’s in Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, Monsters Of Folk, or all on his own, Conor Oberst is a songwriting voice worth hearing. He’s been writing and releasing songs since he was a teenager, and it was surprising then to witness just how much maturity his songs expressed. Now, he’s older, wiser, and back with a new album, Upside Down Mountain. The album marks a new step in Oberst’s career where he shakes off the “prodigy” tag that has followed him for most of his career and establishes himself as a truly great songwriter in his own right. Fans in the Northwest can witness his maturation in person when he comes to the Showbox for what is sure to be a memorable performance.
