Bright Eyes Announce Tour

    The People’s Key might be Conor Oberst’s final album as Bright Eyes — we’ll see about that — but that doesn’t mean he’s about to up and abandon the moniker. The band will take the middling album out on the road this August and September with several different touring partners. One gig includes Titus Andronicus on the bill while several will feature Dr. Dog in a supporting role. Then, Bright Eyes plays nine gigs with First Aid Kit before ending their jaunt at Austin City Limits.
