Conor Oberst’s English gigs

My, my, my.

The year 2008 is turning into an annus mirabilis for this grown-up rockpop fan. After fulfilling long-held ambitions of seeing Morrissey and Bjork in concert, I then booked to catch Beck and Leonard Cohen: which will give me four ticks out of a must-see list of about eight artists.

Tomorrow I hope to add Conor Oberst (erstwhile Bright Eyes), who’s just announced English gigs this summer.

At this rate, before very long, there’ll be no-one left on my poprock must-see list. Joni Mitchell… Radiohead… Paul Weller… and, er, that’s about it.
