"My friends actually used to call me the "Female Conor Oberst." I got to open up with him once and I told him about that and he thought it was hilarious.
I don’t think our music is similar but I’d wear this plaid cowboy shirt and Chucks, and I was singing songs about breaking up. My friend just went, “Oh my God. You’re him. He would wear that! He would totally wear that.”“

So sorry if this is a dumb question, but is Bright Eyes over? I was reading up on Conor's wikipedia page and it implied that The People's Key is the final record. I love Conor's solo music, work with Desa and literally everything else but I didn't really understand that he'd no longer be touring/making records as Bright Eyes?
whenever he feels like going back to it and the stars and conor nate and mike’s schedule lines up they’ll do more music as bright eyes
here’s the master post on the subject
Texas, and it's the weekend. and would you say the crowd tends to be shitty or really nice and laid back? thank you! do you usually do what you can and watch the show from the front row, or do you prefer to have a more laid back and easy experience with an average view? Sorry for all the questions, I'm making a road trip to see him and want to get the most out of it and I want to know what to expect.
if you’re making a whole road trip out of it, and it’s a weekend GA show, i’d get there around 1 and get the full experience right on the barricade. as long as you’re one of the first 10ish people there you’ll be right up front. make friends around you so everyone knows you and will save your spot to pee while waiting in line and also waiting forever for the show to actually start once inside. i’ve never been to tx so i have no idea how the crowd is. i’ve heard mixed stuff depending on the show and the crowd and conor’s mood.
i personally go to the barricade every show except when i watch from vip or in central park from the bleachers.
hi, so if I'm going to see him and I have GA tickets, how early should I line up to be in front? are the concert goers in his crowd the fanatical type who wait starting at like 8AM, or can I show up at a more reasonable time and be fine?
depends on the city, weather, and day of the week.
if you have the time go as early as you can and scope out the line. if no one is there then go have fun around the venue and check back every hour or two.
i’ve seen people line up anywhere from 8 hours early to no one showing up at all until an hour before doors.
Happy Birthday Darling. We miss you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much.
another year I claim of total indifference. to here, the days pile up. with decisions to be made, i’m sure all of them were wrong….
(seriously thank you so much!!)
What do you think about the girls in Italy who took pictures of him trying to enjoy private time on the beach? And then chasing down his car and OPENING HIS CAR DOOR for an autograph a few days ago?
pretty sure you all know what i think about that type of behavior already. zero respect for boundaries. sucks he has to deal with that type of disrespect from people.
