{February 12, 2010}   Elvis Perkins in Dearland…and abandoned zoos…

Another gem found on Current TV (hey, I’ve been snowed in, okay!?), Elvis Perkins in Dearland. There is some serious folk-y goodness going on here. Along with your standard guitar, bass, and drums, you get saxophones, clarinets, organs, harmoniums, and trombones!

This guy also has an incredibly interesting history. Being the son of Anthony Perkins (Norman Bates in Psycho) and Berry Berenson, the youngest daughter of an American shipping executive, who died on September 11, 2001 on American Airlines flight 11, this guy is a musical journalist’s dream. Sometimes the truth really is better than fiction.

Anyway, he’s awesome. I love the whole band actually. Check ’em out over at their site.
