Healing Sound Bath

It’s more than likely you’re familiar with the work of Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst. Combining their song craft superpowers, they become Better Oblivion Community Center. And, while their self-titled release marks the first album they’ve made, this isn’t the first time they’ve made/played music together. Bridgers opened shows for Oberst early on in her career, while Oberst provided some vocals for a track on Bridgers’ 2017 debut Stranger in the Alps. Their recent collaborative efforts also defy any expectations of all-sad songs one might’ve expected of their musical partnership, instead offering something far more diverse.

Don’t miss out. Better Oblivion Community Center performs tonight at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater (remember – it’s been moved from Mohawk), 801 Red River. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with Lala Lala and Christian Lee Hutson sharing the bill. Then, step inside Stubb’s indoor venue for a set by ATX band Being Dead at 10 p.m. Recommended.
