Conor Oberst and Jonathan Wilson

Recommended

Crystal Ballroom (map) Downtown
Wed., Oct. 1, 8 p.m. 2014 All Ages

$30-35

Conor Oberst devotees likely have their tickets to this show clutched firmly in hand, but let me make a case for opener Jonathan Wilson, who's best known for his production work for Father John Misty and Bonnie "Prince" Billy. (He also produced Oberst's latest, Upside Down Mountain.) On his own, however, Wilson has released a pair of beguiling solo LPs via Bella Union: 2011's Gentle Spirit, in particular, is a winner, splitting the difference between Pink Floyd and Yes, but with, like, way more weed. Wilson did a hazy, dazey daytime set at this year's Sasquatch! fest that was definitely one of the weekend's highlights. Even if you forget to bring your vape pen to the Crystal tonight, his noodly tunes guarantee a contact high. NED LANNAMANN
