Conor Oberst and Dawes take over Crossroads KC Wednesday

The heartfelt storytelling and earnest Americana of Los Angeles quartet Dawes feels like an odd pairing for the uncontested genius of Omaha’s Conor Oberst, who rose to fame as the mastermind behind Bright Eyes and Desa­parecidos.

But Dawes is acting as Oberst’s backing band throughout this tour, and so far the concert reviews indicate that the two acts balance each other well. Wednesday at Crossroads KC, you can relax as Dawes lead singer Taylor Goldsmith eases you into the evening before Oberst shakes you out of it.
