I've been happily listening to Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes warble and wail for many years now, but sometimes I think I'm getting a little too old for all this. Desaparacidos, the political wing of the Bright Eyes empire, has cancelled their appearances on the "Plea for Peace" tour. Supposedly there are conflicting schedules, but I am guessing that Desaparacidos intuited that a big tour would probably involve consumerism, which they are so anti-, thus creating an intractable dilemma. Dude.

Plus, apparently Desaparacidos are wont to take off their shirts on stage and then a bunch of people start kissing. This is slightly more annoying than Conor's little affectation (which I noticed only during the most recent show, now that he's turned 21) of taking long slugs in between songs from a bottle of red wine. I mean. Seriously.
