Oh, Holy Fools: The Music of Son, Ambulance and Bright Eyes (Saddle Creek)

"Somnambulence," get it? If you caught Bright Eyes at Kilby Court last year, it was one of the best shows of the years there, with traditional instruments and singer Conor Oberst's overwrought vocal inflections and confessional storytelling making for an intense, intimate evening. Either group could easily fit in the Elephant 6 collective. This set puts the two Omaha groups back to back for an opportunity to compare and contrast, to listen and open your own bright eyes with wonder and astonishment.
