Conor is now in a band with musician Philip Schaffart!
Philip's page on Team love library confirms this with the following:
"Philip Schaffart was conceived in April, 1979 in Florence Nebraska. In addition to his solo work, he is also one half (along with Conor Oberst) of the acoustic duo Dark and Darker."
Special thanks to forum user Humanimal
for bringing this to our attention!
It should be noted that we can't at this time confirm or deny this as it may just be a joke. Keep checking Oberst-Online for up to date information as it comes.
