When the name Conor Oberst comes up, most people immediately think indie folk. Whether it’s under Bright Eyes, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band or as part of the supergroup Monster of Folk, Oberst has made a name for himself in that realm. One thing that would not come to mind for most people when they hear is name is punk. However that’s exactly what the Desaparecidos are. Yet another band fronted by the Omaha, NE native, the Desaparecidos formed in 2001. They were extremely short-lived though, only staying together for a year. In 2010, the five-piece came back for a single night at the Concert For Equality in their hometown. In 2012, the band again reunited for several festivals as well as a short summer tour. The Desaparecidos continue their streak into 2013 as they carve their way through the east coast for a short tour beginning in February. They stop in Philly on 2/23 when they come to Union Transfer.

The Desaparecidos released only one full length album in their short span. The record, Read Music/Speak Spanish was released on Saddle Creek Record and featured Oberst in a completely new and different light. The band gained some notoriety while they toured with groups like The Promise Ring and Jimmy Eat World. However with Oberst focusing more attention on Bright Eyes as they too became more popular, the Desaparecidos quickly faded away. With their return to touring earlier this year, the group released two new songs, their first since Read Music/Speak Spanish.
