@LMBNOLA: PHOTOS – Bright Eyes @ House of Blues 9/13/11
On Tuesday night, Bright Eyes was in the House of Blues as part of the band’s ongoing farewell tour in support of the outfit’s latest album The People’s Key. Our Julia Pretus was there to snap a gallery of shots of what may just be the final New Orleans appearance for Conor Oberst’s project after 16 years. Bright Eyes will be appearing next on Friday evening at this year’s Austin City Limits festival. Continue on for a video of Conor and opening act First Aid Kit doing “Lua” and a photo gallery from the show.
