After collaborating together in the Monsters of Folk super group, the lyrically potent Conor Oberst (reunited with his indie-rock outfit Bright Eyes) and ethereal guitar-picking virtuoso M. Ward perform their own critically praised sets. Bright Eyes is the primary songwriting vehicle for Filene-alum Conor Oberst, who opened for Wilco in 2009 with his Mystic Valley Band. After a brief split in 2008, the band reformed in 2011 to release a new album, The People’s Key.

Portland, Oregon-based guitarist M. Ward has been exploring the depths of indie-folk for the better part of a decade. He is also part of the duo She & Him with actress Zooey Deschanel. Dawes is a California-based outfit that gained buzz after a critically praised debut album in 2009. They are set to release a second album in 2011.
