Conor Oberst's band Desaparecidos recently announced two small NYC release shows for their upcoming album Payola. Those shows (Shea and Rough Trade) sold out instantly, but the band have now added more dates including a larger NYC show.

They'll return to play Webster Hall on August 6. That show (and others on the tour) is with Payola collaborators The So So Glos, as well as Bandroidz. Bandroidz are on the Rough Trade show too, but still no other bands announced for Shea. Tickets for Webster go on sale Friday (5/15) at noon. All dates are listed below.

Conor will also be in NYC with his solo project for Governors Ball and a GovBall aftershow.

The So So Glos play Asbury Park's Skate & Surf this weekend (which we're giving away tickets to), and a pre-Skate & Surf show in Connecticut with Hot Rod Circuit and Small Brown Bike (tickets).

Payola comes out June 23 via Epitaph, and it's their first album since 2002 debut Read Music/Speak Spanish on Saddle Creek. They just put out the album version of "Backsell" which appeared on a single with "MariKKKopa" in 2012 (that one's on the album too). Listen, with the video for "City on the Hill" (ft. Cursive's Tim Kasher), and Desaparecidos' list of dates, below...

Coachella 2015 - Day 3
Coachella 2015 - Day 3
Coachella 2015 - Day 3

Remember punk? The supposed sound of youth and clarity? I don't know about that. Every kind of music has the age it is and the age it wants to be. At Coachella, electronic dance music wants to be young, electro-soul wants to be late-20s and early 30s, and punk, regardless of the age of the people playing it, wants to be middle-aged or older, with mixed feelings. It's the sound of probity, disappointment, disapproval.

The visual clichés of Coachella are sunglasses and dyed blond hair and gym-rats with neon tank tops. The punk shows I've seen so far -- there are a few of them here and there, with small crowds, like secret meetings -- are where the sundresses and tank tops are not. The obstructing monolith disappears; suddenly a different festival reveals itself. Whatever the music might give you, the sight is a relieving contrast. [NY Times]

Coachella 2015 day 3 had the most amount of punk bands of the three days, a genre that was surprisingly well-represented this year, despite the bands' much smaller crowds compared to the increased interest in EDM acts. Day 3 had Brand New, Conor Oberst's recently-reformed Desaparecidos, OFF!, Touche Amore and Joyce Manor, as well as somewhat-related bands like Conor's old Saddle Creek pal Jenny Lewis and Brand New/Desaparecidos' sideshow mate Built to Spill. According to Ian Cohen at Pitchfork, those punk bands "tore through tight and triumphant sets--the difference between bands that had to win over kids instead of critics over the years instead of vice versa was abundantly clear."

It was also the day that Drake headlined (and, uh, made out with Madonna on stage), Florence + the Machine played (and sadly, Florence broke her foot after her set), and we got sets from Ryan Adams, St. Vincent, Jamie xx, Mac DeMarco, Panda Bear, Charles Bradley, Philip Selway, Angel Olsen, John Talabot, Sturgill Simpson, The Cribs and more.

Pictures of day 1 HERE and day 2 HERE. More day 3 pictures below...

Desaparecidos at Coachella 2015 Weekend 1
Coachella 2015 - Day 3

Conor Oberst's punk band Desaparecidos premiered the video for the rocking
"City On The Hill" (which features Tim Kasher) today. The song is from their upcoming album, Payola, due June 23 via Epitaph, which is their first since their 2002 debut on Saddle Creek. Watch the video below.

Desaparecidos are over the West Coast, having just played Coachella weekend 1, and are gearing up to play weekend 2. Pictures from their weekend 1 set are in this post. Before they play the fest again this weekend, they have two sideshows, one with Brand New and Built to Spill, and one with Joyce Manor and Touche Amore. All of their dates, including a few other festivals, are listed below.

Conor Oberst is also playing a solo show in NYC: one of the just-announced Governors Ball aftershows. That happens June 6 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (4/17) at noon with a Citi Cardmember presale starting Wednesday (4/15) at noon.

Desaparecidos

The album's first single, "City On The Hill" is out now and features Conor's old pal Tim Kasher (whose band Cursive recently toured through NYC). Stream the new track below.

Desaparecidos

Conor Oberst reformed his punk band Desaparecidos back in 2012, and two new 7"s came not long after. Now they've announced that they'll release a new full length, the followup to their sole album -- 2002's Read Music/Speak Spanish on Saddle Creek -- and to release it they've signed to Epitaph, currently making them labelmates with Converge, Rancid, Joyce Manor, Pianos Become the Teeth and more. Stay tuned for more info on that.

Desaparecidos recently announced dates surrounding their Coachella performances, which include shows with Built to Spill, Brand New, Joyce Manor and Touche Amore. Since then, they were also announced for Forecastle Festival.

It was already announced that Brand New and Desaparecidos would be playing pre-Coachella shows together, and they've since expanded their itinerary to include an LA show in between the two Coachellas, which excitingly is also with Built to Spill. Brand New have other newly-added Coachella-time dates (with Circa Survive) and Built to Spill are touring on their own around then too. Both BN and BTS also play Shaky Knees Fest. Updated dates are listed below.

Desparecidos have also added an in-between-Coachella LA show with Touche Amore and Joyce Manor, happening ahead of the San Francisco show those three bands play together. Updated lists of their dates below too.

Brand New, Desaparecidos, Built to Spill, Touche Amore and Joyce Manor all play the Sundays of Coachella (with Drake, St. Vincent, Jenny Lewis, OFF! and more). Built to Spill and Joyce Manor also both play Treefort Music Fest.

Desparecidos

Brand New and Conor Oberst's punk band Desparecidos were both already announced for the Sundays of Coachella, and now the two bands have added two club shows together happening not long before the fest (unfortunately nowhere near NYC). Also on the Sundays of Coachella is Joyce Manor, who we just caught in NYC, and who toured with Brand New but didn't meet them, and were covered by Desaparecidos while touring with them. All BN dates (including Shaky Knees Fest) are listed below.

UPDATE: Desaparecidos also play a San Francisco show in between their Coachella performances with Joyce Manor and Touche Amore (who are also on the Sundays of Coachella).

In related news, Crime In Stereo were added as openers to three of The Movielife's reunion shows, including both sold-out NYC shows at Irving Plaza and their not-sold-out Philly show on 3/6 at TLA. Night 1 of Irving also has Pass Away (Mikey & Kellen formerly of I Am the Avalanche + Eric of Crime In Stereo), and Zumo Kollie will open Irving night 2 and Philly.

You may remember that The Movielife's last reunion show in NYC was surprise-opened by both Crime In Stereo and Brand New, and that all three of those bands had members in The Rookie Lot.

Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Desaparecidos @ Voodoo Fest Day 1 - 11/1/13
Voodoo Day 1
Voodoo Day 1
Soundwave

"The Friday Voodoo line-ups are usually pretty slow, so I came into City Park expecting to have a lot of downtime (which ended up being a good thing because for some reason Voodoo never deems it necessary to label anything, so every stage is always unmarked).... I had some time to kill before the night truly began, so I marveled at all of the extraordinary costumes festival goers brought to the park (Walter White was an obvious favorite).

The night began with Desaparecidos. I'm a huge fan of post-hardcore--I love Fugazi, Minor Threat, Rites of Spring, you name it, I probably at least like it. I've also been to (probably more than) my fair share of post-hardcore shows (getting stuck in an Against Me! mosh pit is arguably the punkest thing I've ever done), so when I say that Desaparecidos's Voodoo performance was the best post-hardcore show I've ever seen, it definitely means something. Conor Oberst definitely brought his best cynical self to the show, spouting political statements and really getting into the music with major head banging." [The Daily Reveille]

Other sets on Voodoo day 1 included Anamanaguchi, Those Darlins and New Orleans's own Preservation Hall Jazz Band, all three of which also had over to our Soundwave stage hosted by the funny Dave Hill and Billy Jones (Soundwave schedule HERE).

The day's big headliner was Pearl Jam, who recently played two big shows at Barclays Center, and whose...

headlining set [at Voodoo] started emotionally when guitarist Mike McCready introduced Steve Gleason, the Washington state native who settled in New Orleans after his days with the New Orleans Saints ended. Stricken with Lou Gehrig's disease, the wheelchair-bound Gleason rolled to declare, in his computer-generated voice, "This is my hometown; this is my hometown band." Gleason's presence lingered throughout the show as McCready wore a Team Gleason T-shirt and Eddie Vedder, a wristband. Vedder later dedicated the show and 2006's "Inside Job" to Gleason and his family, and announced that the band let Gleason write the set list -- which led to the inclusion of a quiet "Chloe Dancer" alongside a number of songs from the new Lightning Bolt. [SPIN]
Pearl Jam's full setlist and pictures from the whole day, costumed attendees included, are in this post. Pictures from Day 2 are HERE. More Day 1 below....

Desaparecidos

After Conor Oberst brought his old band, Desaparecidos, through NYC last Tuesday (2/26) for a show at Wester Hall on their tour with Joyce Manor and Thursday/Rival Schools-related project States & Kingdoms, they stuck around to play the venue again the next night. Their setlist was the same as the previous night, including the entirety of their only album, Read Music/Speak Spanish, the band's new singles, and covers of Joyce Manor's "Constant Headache" (joined by members of the band) and The Clash's "Spanish Bombs."

More pictures of all three bands and Desaparecidos' setlist from night 2 below...

Desaparecidos

Conor Oberst's former flame and current touring project Desaparecidos played their first of two NYC shows at Webster Hall last night (2/26) joined by Joyce Manor and States & Kingdoms (mem Thursday, Rival Schools, Small Brown Bike).

Desaparecidos' Conor Oberst @ The Stone Pony, 2/15/2013
Desaparecidos

Conor Oberst pulled his old band Desaparecidos out of retirement and their first East Coast tour in 10 years kicked off at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park on Friday night (2/15). Never without a good anecdote, Oberst reflected upon the time Desaparecidos played the nearby Convention Center opening for Jimmy Eat World. "It was one of the worst fucking shows of all time. Terrible. I laid down and didn't sing the last four songs, the crowd sucked so bad...and Jimmy Eat World's pretty terrible." In addition to their own songs, the band covered The Clash's "Spanish Bombs" and there's video of that, along with more pics from the show, below.

Desaparecidos will wrap up their East Coast jaunt with two shows at Webster Hall next week (Feb. 26 + 27) both of which are with Joyce Manor . Tickets are still available.

In other news, there's a new Desaparecidos 7" out that is available exclusively through the band's website. You can stream both sides below.

Desaparecidos at FYF Fest 2012 (more by Debi Del Grande)
Desaparecidos

Earlier this year, Conor Oberst reformed his old punk band, Desaparecidos, who were only around briefly from 2001-2002. They only played a few shows, including FYF Fest, and now it looks like they've got more scheduled for 2013, including NYC which happens on February 26 at Webster Hall. The punk-oriented bill includes brash pop punks Joyce Manor and ex-Rival Schools/Thursday project States & Kingdoms. Tickets go on AmEx and Fan presale today (11/28) at noon with a general on-sale starting Friday (11/30) at noon.

UPDATE: The full tour was announced and includes Joyce Manor on every date. All dates, including an Asbury Park show at The Stone Pony on February 15, are listed below.

A full 2013 tour has not been announced yet, but all currently known dates are listed below, along with a stream of "MariKKKopa," a new track Desaparecidos dropped earlier this year.

Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
Baroness

Earlier this week, we posted an update from Baroness showing that things were looking upwards for the band. Unfortunately though, with two members having broken vertebrae and frontman John Baizely having a broken arm and leg, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Baroness have in fact cancelled some of their upcoming North American tour dates, including their NYC show at House of Vans and LA's FYF Fest. They will not be replaced on the House of Vans lineup, which happens on August 29 and now just includes Turbonegro, Doomriders, and Nightbirds. This is a bummer but it makes sense that the band takes the time they need to recover, and we wish them a speedy and successful recovery!

Meanwhile, FYF Fest, which Wild Flag also dropped off of, recently expanded its lineup. It now features The Faint (who just announced they'll be reissuing Danse Macabre and touring the album), Glass Candy, King Tuff, and newcomers The Orwells. Tickets for FYF Fest are still available. The updated lineup and flier are below.

Desparacidos are touring in August but no East Coast dates have been announced, at least not yet. All Oberst solo and Desaparecidos tour dates are listed below.
