Sounds Like San Diego: May 11

Elvis Perkins plays the Hideout on Monday

When Elvis Perkins released his debut, "Ash Wednesday," in 2007, his folk stylings proved from the get-go that he would be known for his own music and not because he's the offspring of actor Anthony Perkins (best known for his role as Norman Bates). A couple years later, Perkins followed up with "Elvis Perkins in Dearland," continuing his upward trajectory with another beautiful collection of songs. In this day and age, however, you continue producing and staying at the forefront or the instant-gratification generation move along. With six years since that sophomore release, Elvis released "I Aubade" on his own label. Unfortunately for Mr. Perkins, we're a tough town and have a short attention span, so his show at the Irenic has been moved to the much smaller Hideout, but I promise that it will be a great and intimate show if you can get out this Monday night. Be sure to arrive in time for opener Vikesh Kapoor who has been to San Diego and is an incredible singer-songwriter in his own right. Around town, the Skints are at the Casbah, Dipset plays at the Observatory, NKOTB are at Viejas Arena at SDSU, and Listen SD hosts Toronto band Lyon at Soda Bar.
