No dimmin' these Bright Eyes; no ma'am. Conor and the rest of his crew will cap a summer trek overseas with a single night at Los Angeles' famed Hollywood Bowl, with some help from the Los Angeles Philharmonic. You've come a long way, dude who wrote "It's Cool, We Can Still Be Friends."

Indie rock band playing with the L.A. Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. Gee, that sounds familiar... Perhaps, as with the Decemberists, this will turn into a whole orchestral tour? Please?

In other Bright Eyes news, the band will release a double A-sided single for Cassadaga tracks "Hot Knives"/"If the Brakeman Turns My Way" on Polydor in the UK on Monday, July 9. Conor's also popping up on the Hottest State soundtrack, and may very well be doing something with Lauryn Hill. Oh, and catch Bright Eyes on "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" tonight.
