Despistado To Play Reunion Shows

Image via last.fm“Any despistado fans left?”

This was the question posed via local act Rah Rah’s Twitter account this past Wednesday. An hour and a half later, they followed that tweet with this:

“Yeah man! Despistado in Regina and saskatoon Aug26,27,28. Details soon! RT @scallen: @rahrahband uh-huh… reunion plans?”

They’ve recently confirmed that beloved Regina band Despistado, who broke up in 2004, will be playing at August 26 at the Lazy Owl in Regina, August 27 at Cafe Solla in Saskatoon, and August 28 at the Exchange back in Regina.

I haven’t seen any mention of any of this outside of Rah Rah’s Twitter account, but, considering former Despistado members Joel Passmore and Leif Thorseth are both in Rah Rah these days, we can probably consider this announcement legit.

    This was just sent out by Peter from Surreal on Facebook:

    Subject: DESPISTADO REUNION SHOW – The Owl – August 26th
    Hi folks, this isn’t a Union or Surreal concert but it is definitely something a lot of you are going to be interested in.

    Regina’s very own have decided to come back together and do a date at THE OWL on THURSDAY AUGUST 26th! The link to the facebook event is:

    Tickets go on sale tomorrow (August 17th) and will be available from any WORLD OF TROUT location in Regina or from THE OWL itself.

    Sorry but this show is no minors.

    There’s also a show listed for Aug. 28 at the Exchange that will presumably be all ages. Tinsel Trees are playing with Despistado at the Owl, don’t know who’s backing them up at the Exchange.
