Elvis Perkins In Dearland/Dawn Landes @ The Bell House, Brooklyn 4/23/10

The last time we brought you photos from an Elvis Perkins show was in December at the Bowery Ballroom during a stretch of particularly grey weather. This weekend things were sunnier, despite a few clouds and people still singing about “Doomsday.” Perkins has grown out his beard and added camo to his increasingly countrified ensemble. Otherwise, he showed up to the Bell House in usual form (complete with horns). Speaking of country western get-ups: Friday’s opener, the Brooklyn-via-Kentucky country-folk songwriter Dawn Landes took the Elvis thing seriously and came decked-out in a white rhinestone-lined jumpsuit with Springtime red boots. Our photographer Sean Edgar captured her footwear and various other details.
