ADVISORY: THIS LIVE CONCERT AUDIO CONTAINS ADULT LANGUAGE THAT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR ALL AUDIENCES. ----------------------------------------------------------- Conor Oberst spent the past decade making a name for himself as the youthful, quivery-voiced frontman for the arty folk-rock band Bright Eyes. But from the moment he took the stage at Washington, DC's 9:30 Club, it was clear he'd put that personae behind him, at least for now. Slightly older and more confident, Oberst offered a loose mix of material from his new, self-titled solo album, with the help of the Mystic Valley Band — a group of close, longtime friends Oberst assembled for the CD and tour.
