Elvis Perkins: SXSW; More Mp3s; Selling Out
I missed Elvis Perkins in Dearland’s set last Saturday Feb. 17th at Mo Pitkins. I rushed over from the West Side after catching Group Sounds play a fun set at R&R (prior to the Morning After Girls show there that night), only to discover it was sold out. Not only sold out, but we waited for 30 minutes to try and squeeze in, but the waiting list was far too long and Mo Pitkins too small. I was told by the band that Jim James of My Morning Jacket was in attendance. Now I see that Elvis and crew are also heading to SXSW. Very nice.
But we don’t have to go to Texas to see them. They are on the same bill as Blood on the Wall at the Mercury Lounge March 9th (tix). They also play every Friday in April at the Rockwood Music Hall.
I’ve posted tracks before. You can get them and a few more off their website now.
