This Wednesday, from 6p-8p, tune in to KMNR for this week’s artist feature:

Conor Oberst is best known for his work leading the band Bright Eyes, a staple for moody makeout sessions and serious Millenial philosophers alike. Conor’s poetic lyrics are keen, cynical, and sometimes saccharine. Released independently through their label, Saddle Creek, Bright Eyes have been described as alternativecountry, emo, and just plain terrible.

Last seen promoting their album “The People’s Key” alongside The Mountain Goats in 2011, Bright Eyes has since disbanded. Matthew Oberst, Conor’s brother and business partner, was a Montessori teacher who “basically drank himself to death” in 2016 at 42 years old. Conor Oberst continues to release solo work, and participates in several musical groups. — view on Instagram

Freaker’s Ball Lineup Feature:⠀

The Wild and Free⠀

The Wild and Free is an up and coming pop/rock band out of St. Louis, Missouri. A result of a studio experiment between like-minded musicians, their debut EP, “Sugar High”, showcases powerful vocal hooks, big grooving drum beats, and a perfect blend of rock guitar and modern dance synths. They are currently working on their LP that will be out later this Fall 2019. — view on Instagram
