Preservation Hall Jazz Band & Desaparecidos @ Voodoo Fest Day 1 - 11/1/13
"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).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 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]
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....

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."

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

Sunday's portion of the fest gave us sets by Yeasayer, Dinosaur Jr., American Nightmare, Atlas Sound, Wild Nothing, Desaparecidos (Conor Oberst's old band who reformed this year), Paul Banks, Ceremony, Cursive, and many more.
Pictures of day 1 are HERE and more pics of day 2 are below.
Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
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.
FYF Fest. September 1st and 2nd, 2012WOW.
At the LA State Historic Park, Los Angeles, CA
Tickets are $77 and go on sale Friday June 22nd.
American Nightmare has two shows coming up at Webster Hall.

In other news, Oberst has reformed his band Desaparecidos who only made one album -- 2002's Read Music/Speak Spanish -- and haven't toured together in ten years.
