Steph:  Hey Derek, what do you know about Bright Eyes? A friend of mine is gonna go see him play.

Derek:  Oh really? I just heard him actually for the first time yesterday. But I’ve heard of him quite often.

Steph:  What did you think of his music? I heard it’s kind of singer-songwritery.

Derek:  It’s, uh, very singer-songwritery. It’s a little bit sad music, but it’s pretty interesting.

Steph:  Yeah. Ya know, he’s been playing for a really long time. When he was 14, he was in a band called Commander Venus. Have you heard of them?

Derek:  Ya know, I’ve never heard of that band.

Steph:  I bet it was just a local band from, isn’t he from Nebraska?

Derek:  Yeah. He’s from Omaha and he lives in New York now.

Steph:  Of course. That’s where all the big rock stars live.

Derek:  That’s where they gotta go.

Steph:  I guess so.
