Conor Oberst with the Felice Brothers
This summer season has been a succubus of bad concert ticket sales, even for the old standbys. But take a look at even some middle or small venue rock tour schedules for the fall, and find yourself some gems.
In the following pages, we outline some of the better or more interesting of these, of indie rock acts that are either independently signed or -- you guess it -- rock.
What shows are you excited about? What should we have included?
On this page, we have Bright Eyes frontman / Monsters of Folk collaborator Conor Oberst, who has been making more noise lately as a co-figurehead with Zack de la Rocha in the Sound Strike.
However, he's taking a handful of dates this fall to tour the West Coast, under his name with the Felice Brothers as support and the backing band. I can say as a witness those dudes are pretty weird, but wholly entertaining. It promises to be a killer pair-up.
