The Southern belles, dudes and Angelinos gathered around the front porch that we will just call The Echo in Los Angeles.

Conor Oberst and John Prine at Greek Theatre: modern day meets the old days

If you were in high school anywhere from 2000 to 2008 you may have found Conor Oberst’s music to be of a kindred spirit. The angst ridden ballads of “lovers tied together” or the crushing too-close-for-comfort of “It’s Cool We Can Still Be Friends” may have tore out your heart strings. (Seriously, the latter is […]
