Bright Eyes - Live Review (Twilight Concert Series)

As Bright Eyes took the stage last night with frontman Conor Oberst appearing last, it dawned on me how big of a following the band truly has. With an overwhelming number of screaming and cheering from the start, I honestly have to say the majority of the crowd sang to just about every song. I have to admit, never really being a huge Bright Eyes fan, they put on a wonderful show with plenty of interaction from the crowd. At one point Oberst expressed how great it is that Salt Lake City puts on free shows and how he wished his home town did that. He also went on to thank the opening band, Wild Nothing, and the audience for coming. The whole show was filled with energy and you could tell how happy the crowd was to be there. Both the atmosphere and show were energetic, and I would recommend checking them out next time they stop in your town.
