Desaparecidos, the raucous band fronted by Conor Oberst whose last album was released ten years ago, announced yesterday they were reforming for a festival in their hometown of Omaha this August. Last night, the group attended a quiz night at Omaha bar Slowdown, won, and played an impromptu secret show for all the runners-up.
Here's how it happened...
