    Bright Eyes' leader Conor Oberst is an enterprising young mean. He will open a bar with fellow Omaha musician Phil Schaffart in his home state of Nebraska. They are, to quote Lady Gaga, cool Nebraska guys.

    There will be no music at The Pageturners Lounge, which is named after the bookshop which previously inhabited the space. Oberst and Schaffart bought the property back in February.

    The plan to open a bar has been in place for years and now, it's about three months away from opening day.

    Would you toss one back in Conor Oberst's bar?
