Kirby Center on Thursday, July 27 at 8:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at the Kirby Center Box Office, by phone at (570) 826-1100 and online at Conor Oberst joined his first band at the age of 13 and has been releasing music since 1993. Over the next two-plus decades, he has released cassette-only recordings, split 7-inches, and a dozen albums of uncommon insight, detail, and political awareness with his band Bright Eyes, as a solo artist, as a member of Desaparecidos, as leader of The Mystic Valley Band, and with the Monsters of Folk super-group. Oberst is currently touring in support of his 2016 stripped-down solo album, Ruminations, and his 2017 follow-up, Salutations. Pitchfork called Ruminations “a record like none other in Oberst's catalog, stunning for how utterly alone he sounds.” Salutations, which was met with similar acclaim, features full-band versions of the ten songs from Ruminations, plus seven additional tracks.
