Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst returned to Iowa City Sunday for the last show of his current tour. Also know for his work as Bright Eyes, as the frontman of Desaparecidos and as one of the founders of Saddle Creek Records. Oberst toured on his latest solo record, Ruminationsout now on Nonesuch Records.

Oberst’s set started a little late because of a technical issue with his keyboard, quickly remedied thanks to some quick thinking by Englert staff. The crowd didn’t seem discouraged by the delay in the slightest.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][hcode_image_gallery image_gallery_type=”lightbox-gallery” simple_image_type=”feet” lightbox_type=”grid” column=”3″ image_gallery=”115218,115228,115227,115225,115224,115222,115221,115219,115223,115220,115226″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
