Show Of The Week

May 17, 2017


Know what I’ve really been digging this year?  Conor Oberst’s Salutations.  It’s a great album with a slew of comfy country tunes on it, and I’ve left it on repeat a lot so far in 2017.  If I’m lucky, he’ll play most of it at ACL Live this Friday.  Or he won’t and I’ll have a good time anyways because its Conor Oberst, man of many great songs.  By the way, be sure to show up early to see the fantastic Julien Baker.  That girl is a legit talent.

Tix are $35-46.

Side note, also on Friday (and just below the Conor Oberst gig) is The Wild Now’s EP release party at 3TEN at ACL Live.  If you’re going to see Oberst, you should hop down and watch some of this local act’s set.  They have some fantastic pop tunes.

Tix are $10.  Shoot an email HERE for a chance to win a pair of guest list spots for The Wild Now!
