No love for the PNW on this tour. I was really hoping to get to see this show. :cry:

Re: Elvis (solo) plays Bellingham, WA , April 17th 2016

I was originally going to pass on this one, as Bellingham is about 2 hours north of me, and I'm getting too old to manage after late Sunday nights. I, predictably, buckled, and grabbed the last 2 seats within any proximity of one another, though I'll be in the back of the theatre and not in the fron...

Re: comedy central tonight?

This might seem out of the blue, but does anybody still have this? I feel like I've been trying to track down a video or even an audio file since I watched it live and have always come up short. Seeing him play Freebird and Who Let the Dogs Out was so surreal that I need to prove it even happened.

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

cwr, I was mostly being snarky in a general way, and to clarify, my confusion stemmed from reading your comment as saying that the track hadn't seen a proper album release, which it obviously had, I didn't realize you were speaking specifically of a version more faithful to the original/demo.

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I don't get what you mean. The ATUB version was on a proper album and was executed well, much better than on SP&S. I'm not particularly in favor of him re-recording already released, good tracks to be an aside on an album sitting at Starbucks cash registers.

I guess I can't say for 100% sure, but I would've sworn he sang it when he played Bumbershoot in Seattle in 2005, replacing Devo who dropped out last minute. no worry...ANCT will hit the bootleg to verify that you are probably wrong...NO OFFENSE! :lol: Haha, can I at least get the bootleg then? :D ...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I think thinking you can control a media release in this day and age is out of touch to some extent (even more so when you're distributing copies out to radio hosts to play at will). Not that it's somehow wrong or defies the best way to experience music. I'm a person who still listens to albums...as...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

It'd be a shame if these files were available to diehard fans guaranteed to buy the record before 95% of people just streamed these tracks off Spotify for fractions of pennies. :mrgreen: I'm fine with that stance from the Roots/EC peeps, but it's decidedly out of touch.

I haven't been as into any of the subsequent 3 tracks as I am Walk Me Uptown, and that's more of a reflection on the other 3 tracks than the leadoff single. All sounds good and all but nothing that feels like much more than semi-filler tracks we won't really speak of much an album or two down the ro...

The time for revisiting Costello "oldies" will be on tour. I've loved EC + The Roots performing his songs together, but I'm far more excited to hear a creative collaboration that extends beyond rearranging their favorite EC songs.

Well, I was going to get up and go after the At the Drive In vinyl anyways, but apparently it's getting a wide release and RSD is just for a limited color pressing (I can live without that).
