Conor Oberst set to perform with Dawes at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall
Ponte Vedra Beach, FL--(Tuesday, February 11, 2014) — Indie Rock singer-songwriter Conor Oberst will perform at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall with Dawes on Tuesday, May 13 at 8:00PM.
With his trembling voice, acoustic guitar, and confessional approach to songwriting, Conor Oberst played an important role in shaping the lighter, intimate side of indie rock during the late-'90s and beyond. His main project was Bright Eyes, an eclectic group of rotating musicians that vacillated between pop, folk, electronica, and country-rock. Although Oberst remained at the center of that band, he also logged time in a number of other outfits, including Commander Venus, Monsters of Folk, the Magentas, Park Ave., Desaparecidos, and an early version of the Faint. Finally, he supported like-minded artists on an executive level, co-founding Saddle Creek Records in the '90s and launching his own label, Team Love, in 2003.
Recorded in a makeshift studio with a cast of musicians dubbed the Mystic Valley Band, the self-titled Conor Oberst arrived in 2008. While on the road in support of that album, the Mystic Valley Band found time to compose another album, this time highlighting the band's collaborative spirit. Released in 2009, Outer South feat...

The missed call cell phone scam
The Better Business Bureau has issued a warning to people about a new scam- The missed call cell phone scam.
The Better Business Bureau (BBB) have issued a alert about the cell phone scam, explaining it in more detail. The scam group have their computers call your cell phone number (and, of course, the numbers of thousands of other people), and let the phone ring just once. That leaves a "missed call" indicator on your phone. Most of us will ignore the call but others wondering who just called from an unfamiliar number will call back. That's when the trouble begins.
If you call back, you're actually calling an international number, and the cell phone scam immediately connects you to a premium service, such as an adult entertainment service or "chat" line. The meter immediately starts running often hitting you with an initial international call fee of $19.95, followed by charges of perhaps $9 per minute, or more. The total hit could be just a few dollars so as not to catch your attention or concern or it could be much more.
You can avoid getting involved by simply not calling back an unknown number that was missed. The Better Business Bureau notes that these calls generally come from outside the U.S., wit... [Read More]
