You can't roll up to a party and throw on ANY Bright Eyes album.
Unless it was a funeral.
For the WRONG KID.
Radiohead too apparently!
I got a lil' temp job at a flower shop for a week working with 3 college girls and 3 60+ women. One of the other college girls played some Radiohead and the old ladies called their songs "funeral dirges." It was fun watching the arguments between the girls and the old women on the merits of Radiohead.
AHHHHHH. HG. You will be too impressed to yell WKD when Bright Eyes takes the stage.
I wouldn't mess with those Conor Oberst freaks either. If you think I am bad....I'm not even close to some of those wackos. That's the reason I am not a part of any Bright Eyes message boards. They don't even know who Mike Mogis is. Its like talking to a bunch of Tool fans that don't know who Adam Jones is. I got in a Dr. Garbanzoht with some of those hardcores in the NPR chat during the SXSW broadcast.
Conor had a brother who drowned in a bathtub when they were both children. Conor went on to write roughly ninety bagillion songs about it, get rich and contract herpes from some emo chick(s); his brother stayed dead.
