Thursday, March 12 Quandary
by Brad Roberts
What does a person do when faced with choices like these? Plant and Animals, Castledoor and Avi Buffalo at The Echo or Fol Chen, Bodies of Water and Lake at the Echo Curio or Elvis Perkins in Dearland and Tim Eriksen Shape-Note Extravaganza at the Troubadour, not to mention Cursive and Modern Memory at Spaceland and Willoughby at the Silver Lake Lounge.
Fortunately, I got a ticket to Elvis Perkins in Dearland a while ago, before all these other shows popped onto the radar. So I'm committed. But this is getting more and more typical of the emotional contortions you have to go through to make decisions like these. It's a delicious predicament.
I'm enjoying the new Elvis Perkins CD, love the Becky Stark background vocals on the song "Hey" and, having seen him a couple of times before, I'm ready to be impressed. Hope some of you all catch the other shows because every one is well worth your time.
