In the late ’90s and early 2000s, Omaha, Nebraska’s Saddle Creek Records dominated the indie landscape in a big way, largely on the back of Bright Eyes and Cursive, projects that were masterminded by Conor Oberst and Tim Kasher, respectively. Now, more than two decades later, Oberst tours mostly under his own name, while Kasher rotates between Cursive, the Good Life and solo outings. Both Oberst and Kasher are currently touring on records put out this year – Oberst’s Salutations and Kasher’s No Resolution. Both men have grown into songwriters with a penchant for exploring disillusionment with modern life and the struggles of relationships. But while Oberst has carved out a place in mid-tempo Americana, often collaborating with the likes of Dawes and the Felice Brothers, Kasher has proven to be more of an experimentalist, often incorporating string arrangements, interludes and conceptual narratives into his albums. Rounding out this bill is current Saddle Creek star Frances Quinlan, lead singer of label standout Hop Along.
