ROCK | Desaparecidos 

After dissolving the Bright Eyes moniker and producing a couple commercially and critically unexciting solo records, it's nice to see poetic songwriter Connor Oberst playing in a rock band, maybe even having fun. Desaparecidos, with its political topics and punk-informed momentum, are the right vehicle for Oberst at this point in his career. Originally forming in 2001 around Oberst's prime political songwriting period, the band returns in time to deliver another visceral reflection on the unsavory state of the American climate. Since the band's first record, 2002's "Read Music/Speak Spanish," Oberst and crew have made themselves busy in his numerous other projects, almost insinuating that Desaparecidos were a one-off. A new record, "Payola," suggests this is one of the only bands to take a 10-plus-year hiatus and actually get better.

Desaparecidos plays with The So So Glos and The Banddroidz at on Friday, July 31, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 8 p.m. $20-$25. waterstreetmusic.com; desaparecidosband.com.
