Emo Kids Arise! A Free Bright Eyes Doc Is Now Online


While there’s certainly debate amongst our music nerds as to whether Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst is this generation’s Dylan or a coffee-house cretin whose voice has yet to progress beyond pre-pubescence [Editor’s note: I wonder which side Andy’s on…], we have to give him credit. He’s spent the last 15 years meticulously working his way out of Omaha, and the resulting indie-emo empire has brought the concept of DIY to a whole new generation. A free gift to lovers and haters alike, Phil Schaffart’s One Of My Kind: The Story Of The Mystic Valley Band 60-minute Oberst documentary is now available online. We welcome reviews in the comments.
