Elvis Is Entering The Building

No, not the one who has been dead for so long. The music-maker and lyricist with little equals, Elvis Costello is coming through the IA viewing area over the next few weeks. I got to see him a few years ago and his energy on stage is amazing. He always breaks out a few old crowd pleasers. Do not miss this show! Oh, and for the Baltimore/DC area show, he is opening for a none other than Bob Dylan, with Amos Lee in support.

just saw elvis last night here in buffalo. it was him on acoustic and electric guitar and steve nieve on grand piano, synths, melodica, and some other weird-sound-making, theramin-esque device. witnessing elvis' unmatched songwriting and strong-as-it-ever-was vocal prowess coupled with steve's virtuosic keyboard playing it was truly incredible.

feist opened.

it started raining about halfway through feist's set, at which point she said they'd be forced to cut their set short. as they played their "last" song ("sea lion," the introductory audience-inclusive chant of which they temporarily changed to "no rain"), the rain let up and stopped by the time the song was over. this, of course, was attributed by one of feist's band members to the communal "no rain" chant. they played a few more jams, and it was good.

after their set, the rain started up again and continued right up until elvis and steve took to the stage. not another drop fell through the entirety of their set as if someone(/-thing) wanted us to see and hear the performance in full unhindered. theirs really is a must-see show, even for the moderately interested.
