Conor Oberst is not a happy man these days. Already an outspoken member of the Sound Strike, the Nebraska-bred Bright Eyes frontman took his band and his fight home to the Concert for Equality. The July 31 and August 1 event took place to benefit the ACLU’s fight against the recently passed law in Fremont, Neb. that aims to ban hiring and renting to illegal immigrants. Oberst performed solo, with Bright Eyes and with a reunited Desaparecidos to take a stand against the impending ban. Click “read more” to see him in action.
