Re: Elvis song taught at 'O'-level?

Luxembourg was surprisingly and delightfully played at the April 1st show at Gramercy Theater in NYC a few years ago.

Re: On Oct. 18, 2017 the Little Kids Rock organization is honoring Elvis Costello for their annual event

Can someone who was there please give us a review. It's one of your forum duties! A brief but fun concert preceded by the usual boring LKR fundraising activities - kids playing rock music covers, speeches, a dinner break (for those at the tables, for the rest of us FF members in the cheap seats a c...

Re: On Oct. 18, 2017 the Little Kids Rock organization is honoring Elvis Costello for their annual event

It was for a good cause, but that was painful. Although Forbidden Nights probably made it worthwhile.

Also, don't forget "Somewhere" (There's a Place For Us) at the end of the Alison medley!

Good to to see my friends from the board!

Alison is about 3 minutes in.


That is quite cool!

I was at the MetLife show last month and it was wonderful. Tremendous experience, both musically and visually.

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers -Vienna, VA, Filene Center At Wolf Trap , June 22 2017

The lack of variety in the set lists this tour was a little disappointing, although granted they did have to play most of the IB songs. Eases the pain of missing this leg of the tour a little.

We will never see Painted From Memory, A Face in the Crowd, or any of the other alleged EC musicals. Here's hoping he releases an album or two with all the songs that were slated for the musicals.

And the Face In The Crowd songs are just so, so good, I really hope he makes an album of them one day. Got excited when he went into Boy With a Problem, b...

"Little Savage" and "Boy With A Problem" have only been played once each, so I suppose if any songs were to be skipped they would be the most likely candidates. But I think he'll play them all." Indeed, these were the only 2 not played last night. Little Savage seems like it...

Doc's post reminds me, I thought the new artwork for the backdrops was outstanding - using all the album covers with an overlay of the artistic technique from the IB album. They were selling an art book with these prints at the merch table, so I bought one.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play Atlantic City, NJ , October 22 2016

My take - Very fun show despite the terrible crowd. There were a few technical problems that seemed to piss Elvis off (his own guitar, Steve's keyboards, and Davey's bass at one point), and the band will surely get tighter in short order. At least half the songs I had never seen performed before. Lo...
