I won this awesome poster that was designed by a shop in Ithaca for the Conor Oberst/Dawes show I saw earlier this month!! AND it’s signed by everyone! So happy.
"My friends actually used to call me the "Female Conor Oberst." I got to open up with him once and I told him about that and he thought it was hilarious.
I don’t think our music is similar but I’d wear this plaid cowboy shirt and Chucks, and I was singing songs about breaking up. My friend just went, “Oh my God. You’re him. He would wear that! He would totally wear that.”“

Well if he probably taught Spanish speaking kids, does it mean that he can speak Spanish? Yeah, I know that he lived in Mexico, but I think that living in Mexico doesn't means that somebody can speak Spanish in 100%. :-)-Anonymous
I never said he can speak Spanish.. I think I’ve heard him attempt Spanish before and he didn’t sound fluent lol. To teach ESL, you don’t need to know Spanish or whatever the first language is, as long as you know English. Anyways, none of this is confirmed at all, just speculation for fun.
