Video of the Moment #2305: Conor Oberst

St. Dymphna started her life in Ireland and lived a pretty eventful life in just 15 years before her father struck her a sword and left her dying. Ask a Catholic. She is now immortalised in a song title, ‘Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out’, surprisingly by Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst. The actual song is more about getting drunk alone in a bar and the eventual peril, if you will, of getting kicked out of said bar at the end of the night. The video mirrors this idea, as the camera pans sideways down what seems like an infinitely long bar and a series of individual drunks. One step further, seeing that St. Dymphna is the patron saint of nervous and mental afflictions, it seems appropriate – and touching – that someone like Oberst who has struggled with depression himself would pen such song. Watch the video for ‘Till St. Dymphna Kicks Us Out’ below. The single will appear on Oberst’s newest album ‘Salutations’, out on St. Patrick’s Day on Nonesuch Records.
