Conor Oberst -- who is Bright Eyes in the way that Trent Reznor is Nine Inch Nails -- comes to the Marquee tonight. To mark the occasion we enlisted local singer-songwriter Zachary James Dodds to play a song from Conor's immense catalog. He chose "Tourist Trap" off the Four Winds EP, and we think he nailed it.
Check out Conor Oberst tonight at the Marquee or Dodds along with Cecelia Ann, Bradley & The Materials, and Formerly Known As Happy at Vida e Caffe in Globe starting at 7 p.m. on Friday April 17. That show is free.
