Bright Eyes, Wild Nothing

Thankfully, Conor Oberst lasted longer as an artist worth listening to than did the non-stop comparisons to Bob Dylan early in his career. As a member of Bright Eyes, Desaparecidos, Monsters of Folk and as a solo act, Oberst has proven to not only be ridiculously prolific, but a man with a wide-ranging musical imagination. Bright Eyes are arguably his best project, and have released a series of excellent albums in the past decade, from 2000’s Fevers and Mirrors through 2005’s I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning to this year’s uneven but ultimately winning The People’s Key. Live Bright Eyes shows in Salt Lake City in the past have included choirs and string sections. Here’s hoping there’s something special in store for the band’s Twilight Concert Series debut. Wild Nothing opens the show. Pioneer Park, 350 W. 300 South, 7 p.m., free
