Revisiting Conor Oberst’s Nod To Leonard Cohen

Conor Oberst

We’re majorly excited about Conor Oberst‘s Capitol Theater show this Sunday night (September 23) and have been trying to fill our ears with a heavy dose of tunes by the Bright Eyes frontman as the concert draws near.

Though Oberst himself ranks among the world’s best living songwriters, it’s also fun to hear his take on other artists’ work, which led us to this NPR interview where he gives tribute to another one of the greats: Leonard Cohen.
