Conor Oberst Goes ‘Zigzagging Toward the Light’ on Late Night TV
The Bright Eyes singer played a cut off of 'Upside Down Mountain' on 'Kimmel'
Conor Oberst led the Jimmy Kimmel Live audience up (or is it down?) his sixth solo album Upside Down Mountain last night performing “Zigzagging Toward the Light,” a methodic and somewhat twangy tune elevated by a whimsical “ooooohhhhhh” in the chorus. The Bright Eyes singer has recently hit his stride on late night stages promoting the record — in July, Oberst dazzled Letterman with the delicate and uplifting “Hundreds of Ways.” Watch his Kimmel performance above.
