  • Conor Oberst performs March 18 at the Civic Theatre.

Singer-songwriter Conor Oberst performs March 18 at the Civic Theatre, the day after the release of Salutations, his companion to 2016's stripped-down Ruminations on Nonesuch Records. Oberst — who's been a part of or fronted countless projects and artists, from Saddle Creek's aggressively vulnerable anchor Bright Eyes to the recently resurrected punk band Desaparecidos — revisits his largely acoustic seventh solo album, the Nebraska-raw Ruminations, with full-band arrangements on 2017's Salutations.

Guests on the album include Jim James, M, Ward, Gillian Welch and several others, including The Felice Brothers, who will back Oberst on a March tour.

Oberst will donate $1 from each ticket to Planned Parenthood, via the concert campaign Plus 1. Tickets for the Civic show are $26 in advance, $30 the day of the show and go on sale 10 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 19.
