Take Off the Mask, Conor

I saw Bright Eyes play a raucous show once at Little Brothers in Columbus. Conor Oberst came out wearing a rubber George W. Bush mask. He only lifted the mask slightly when he needed another swig from his rather large bottle of red wine.

The mask stayed on through two or three songs despite pleas from several young women in the crowd to take it off. They just wanted to see his face, which they did, eventually.
