Commander Venus was an American emo band from Omaha, Nebraska. Fronted by Conor Oberst and Tim Kasher, the band also included Todd Fink and Matt Bowen of The Faint, Ben Armstrong of Head of Femur and Robb Nansel, executive producer of the indie label Saddle Creek.[1] Kasher subsequently went on to front the band Cursive, and Oberst later became famous as the core member of the indie folk collective Bright Eyes, and later the punk band Desaparecidos.[2]

They recorded two albums, Do You Feel at Home? on Saddle Creek and The Uneventful Vacation,[3] on Grass Records, which became Wind-up Records, that ultimately licensed the CD to Thick Records.
