Better Oblivion Community Center


O2 Ritz, Manchester


May 12th 2019

Louder Than War photographer Melanie Smith took a trip to capture the new, yet much acclaimed L.A based outfit which features American singer-songwriters Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst. The collaborating project, who have a perfect onstage rapport, possess the unusual title of the Better Oblivion Community Center. They are a blend of Americana, rock, indie-folk and are first rate singer/ songwriters.

Despite only recently releasing their debut album in January the crowds flock to witness their first show in Manchester and its a sold out show.
