Conor Oberst

“I know it’s kind of a weird show with very long, slow songs,” said Conor Oberst just before ending his headlining set at The Egg last week with “Lime Tree,” a rather long, slow song about loss – couched in melancholy nature imagery.

“Sometimes you gotta get really bored to know you’re having fun, right?” he added, only partially joking. He had a bit of a point; after nearly 20 songs that were similar in tempo – strummed on guitar by Oberst as he sat hunched on a chair center-stage – a slight ennui had set in.

It didn’t help that before the show a rumor had spread in the women’s bathroom line that three members of the Felice Brothers were in the house, leading to anticipation of a rousing onstage Felice Brothers-Oberst jam that never materialized.
