Conor Oberst :: Playing Some Crazy Protest Shows

In response to Arizona's fun little new immigration game, Conor Oberst and a bunch of other folks have boycotted the state under the initiative called Sound Strike. In the name of protest Conor is reuniting Desaparecidos for one night only on July 31st in Omaha. Also, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band is playing in LA with Rage Against the Machine...which will be a bizarre and awesome combination.

Read Conor's open letter to Arizona:: here.

If you haven't heard Desaparecidos :: Read Music/Speak Spanish and you're interested, get a hold of it. It's one of my favorite records of all time. The tragedy of suburban America as only a sad folk singer pretending to be a punk rock star can tell it.
