Besides the whole Warren Buffett, College World Series, and Cornhusker thing, my home is known for it's Indie Rock....Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes in particular. I don't want to sound braggish but I did spend two years in college living next to THE Saddle Creek road (of Saddle Creek record fame). While I never really did become a fanatical buff of Indie Rock, I am still overjoyed to see Conor's musical talent continue to actualize. Today he resleases a solo, self-titled album. His new band calls themselves the Mystic Valley Band
The Mystic Valley Band has announced plans for a series of rare in-store performances at local independent retailers in Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Nashville and NYC. In-store performances:
07/30/08 Seattle, WA @ Easy Street Records @ 6 PM 08/02/08 San Francisco, CA @ Amoeba Records @ 3 PM 08/04/08 Los Angeles, Amoeba Records @ 6 PM 08/08/08 Nashville, Grimey’s @ 6 PM 08/12/08 New York, NY @ Other Music @ 1 PM (at the Bowery Ballroom)
