If you’re looking for an escape far from the madding crowds, glitz, fireworks and boisterous, artificially induced euphoria of other New Year’s Eve celebrations, Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band could provide a tranquil oasis away from it all. At the Lodge Room this evening, the only party favors that matter will be Oberst’s contemplative words, spilling forth from his reunited group’s laid-back country-folk settings. On his old tune “To All the Lights in the Windows,” the singer invokes Moses, Solomon and Jesus in a Dylanish litany of religious name-dropping that’s really set up to frame his own romantic feelings, as his bandmates torch some Neil Young & Crazy Horse–style tumbleweeds behind him: “Yeah, that’s the thing about charisma/It makes everyone believe. … When I’m with you and when you’re with me/I got a sad, sinking feeling that will never be.”
