I’ll be honest right here. I went to catch Desaparecidos out of nostalgia, which I think was probably the case for a lot of people. When I left, however, I felt something different. Aside from my ears ringing, I sort of felt bad.

I don’t understand why this show hasn’t sold out yet, so be warned, you better grab the last remaining tickets as soon as you can. Desaparecidos rose to prominence long ago, as singer Conor Oberst star also began to rise nationally. But, as soon as they rose, they disappeared, much like their name would imply…many of their fans were never able to catch the act live. Now’s your chance, and if you needed more convincing, just check out the openers. I’ve not got too much info on Purple, but I’ve loved everything that’s come our way from The So-So Glos. They’ve won over fans on their brief stops through town, and they’ll definitely be an important part of what I can only expect is an incredible evening. Cheers to Transmission for bringing them all to Austin.
