Video: Conor Oberst (Live in Omaha)

January 27, 2012

With Bright Eyes now a marquee act at high-capacity theaters the world over, opportunities to catch Conor Oberst performing an intimate set — like, say, this Halloween 2003 tribute to Elliott Smith in a bookshop — have become increasingly rare. Enter Krug Park, a new Omaha bar owned by an Oberst buddy who recruited his famous friend to anoint the small space last week. Thanks to videographer Jonathan Tvrdik (via NJ Underground), we have a fine multi-camera peek at two songs from the show. Watch above as vibraphones, violins, and ultimately the crowd join in for “Lenders in the Temple” and “Laura Laurent.”
