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.
