    Conor Oberst Kicks Off U.S. Tour

    It was never fair when critics and fans dubbed indie boy wonder Conor Oberst his generation's Bob Dylan -- just like it wouldn't be fair to call his latest group, the Mystic Valley Band, his generation's Eagles. But still, the similarities are there. During the band's hometown tour-opener Thursday night at Omaha, NE's the Slowdown, a 600-capacity venue owned and operated by the folks who run Saddle Creek Records, each member of the group took the helm for at least one song, while Oberst played the role of enthusiastic sideman. Guitarist Taylor Hollingsworth was Joe Walsh on a short Beatle-esque pop song, bassist Macey Taylor was Timothy B.
