Watch: Ben Kweller Collaborates With Conor Oberst in Brooklyn

Greenville's Own Ben Kweller has had his fair share of collaborators over the years -- and, in this coming week's paper, we'll meet one of them, John David Kent, his former Radish bandmate, who is starting to make waves on his own thanks to his new outfit, John David Kent and the Dumb Angels. This week, though, Kweller's added a pretty big name to his list.

Earlier this week, as Kweller did earlier this month when he shared the Granada Theater stage with Rhett Miller for a medley of the Pixies' "Wave of Mutilation" and the Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated" at the CF Benefit concert, Kweller shared the stage with another singer-songwriter. At a show in Brooklyn, Kweller was joined on stage by Conor Oberst, where the two together performed Oberst's "Another Travelin' Song." Check it out after the jump, where you can also catch Kweller's collaboration with Miller.
