Elvis Perkins to Play In-Store Show at M-Theory

The great Elvis Perkins will be bringing his heartbreaking songs of staggering genius to San Diego on March 15th for an in-store set at M-Theory Music.

Surely you’re wondering why someone who created an album as unrelentingly amazing as 2007’s Ash Wednesday—probably the closest thing the world will ever get to a follow-up to In An Aeroplane Over The Sea—would be playing at the admittedly cool but nevertheless tiny Mission Hills record store.

We’re not exactly sure either, but the answer almost certainly has something to do with Elvis Perkins In Dearland, the singer-songwriter’s forthcoming sophomore album, set for release on March 10th. Those who pre-order it will be treated to an instant 128k stream of the entire album.

The brilliance is set to commence at 4pm, so shake off that hangover, grab a burrito at Santana’s, and head on over. The show is one of Perkins’ first stops on an expansive tour that will take him all over America and Europe before culminating at Bonnaroo. Dates and a stream of “Shampoo” from Elvis Perkins In Dearland after the jump.
