Desaparecidos this morning announced a 9-date East Coast tour in February. More details here. Tour opener Joyce Manor is a “Cali punk” band that played with Cursive this past fall at an NYC concert, according to this Brooklyn Vegan review. The other tour opener, States & Kingdoms, is a new band featuring members of Rival Schools, Thursday, Retisonic, Small Brown Bike, and Atlantic/Pacific.

Speaking of Desa, where’s my friggin’ 7-inch that I ordered last spring? GET WITH IT!

Could someone (1% Productions, maybe) please figure out a way to get Low back to Omaha? It’s been awhile since their last headline show here (I’m not counting that Death Cab opening gig), and they’ve got a new album coming out on Sub Pop March 19 called The Invisible Way. The record was produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. Check out the “trailer” (and why all the sudden records are getting trailers?) below.

Moments after posting yesterday about tonight’s free King Khan & BBQ Show / Digital Leather concert at The Slowdown I received a message from one of the bands that there will, indeed, be free booze available. Again, you have to RSVP at the Sailor Jerry’s website, here to get in. Not sure why, but that’s the dealio. Show starts at 9 and is 21+ only. See you there.

Those of you wondering what King Khan BBQ sounds like, here’s an ancient video for “Fish Fight”:
