Though Bright Eyes is back together, Conor Oberst will be playing solo when he arrives at StageOne this Thursday for a show that sold out just as quickly as it was announced. (There's a waiting list, however, so you've still got a chance.) Oberst is the shaky-voiced indie rock boy who has matured well and continued to develop his craft enough to have lasting appeal, now 20 years into his recording career (though he's only 32). First Aid Kit opens the show, another very cool booking for the Fairfield Theater.
StageOne, 70 Sanford St., Fairfield. Thu., July 26, 7:30 p.m. $35-$40. (203) 259-1036, fairfieldtheater.org.
