Even though I’ve never given up anything for Lent in my life, I obviously couldn’t let this day pass without posting the great Elvis Perkins song (from the 2007 album of the same name) that pays tribute to it in rather stark form. Dude’s seen a lot in his life, and you can hear it in the songs. Last year someone commented that they were trying to give up my blog for Lent, but the Monday Music Roundup cracked them and they buckled, they clicked. It’s hard, I know. What are you giving up for Lent, if anything? Let me know so I can enjoy it on your behalf and write about it.
Ash Wednesday – Elvis Perkins
Also, speaking of not denying yourself the good fruits of this world, how about Pearl Jam headlining Bonnaroo with My Morning Jacket, Plant & Krauss, The Raconteurs and more? Tennessee beckons.
