Desaparacidos, Sorry About Dresden and Now It's Overhead

Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), emo-rock's very own Holden Caulfield gone rock activist, is heading back to the Triangle, this time with his new rock project, Desaparacidos. Part of the Saddle Creek stable, the five-piece rock outfit is characterized by Oberst's trademark angst-filled vocals and questioning lyrics, only this time he's shouting over shards of overdriven guitar, propulsive drum parts and cool keyboard parts. Their anticipated debut disc, Read Music/Speak Spanish, is everything you like about Bright Eyes but louder, rawer, more distorted as Oberst takes the hypocrisy of the "American Dream" to task. Sorry About Dresden, incidentally, besides featuring Conor's big bro Matt, will be sharing the bill, along with Saddle Creek's lush and ethereal Now It's Overhead this Friday, Jan. 25, at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro. --Angie Carlson
