Thoughts on the New York Shows...

Anyone here who went to all four? Any thought on which was the best?

I only went to two, but I'd be surprised if 3/9 didn't emerge as the highest-rated....

Re: Elvis and The Imposters , Port Chester , March 9 2018

FAVEHOUR:

I had the exact same experience tonight. Was a bit let down after the Bklyn show, mostly because I was expecting something different. But, like you, tonight I just decided to sit (also: sitting was nice) and enjoy, and boy, did I.

Very hot show. And, holy shit: Poor Napoleon!!!!

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Brooklyn, March 7 2018

A great, but not awesome show. Some terrific surprises (Blue Chair, Miracle Man, Next Time Around, Come the Meantimes, Still Have That Other Girl) but, I dunno, the show didn't seem to have a focus. That's what happens when you're not touring an album or framing it with a gimmick (Spinning Songbook,...

Brooklyn Steel is booked on 3/10 and 3/12, so I imagine they'd be hard pressed to postpone or cancel the gig. Personally, I'd love a slightly depressed turnout.....

Re: "Someone Else's Heart" - EC single for Record Store Day?

On one of the EC-devoted Facebook pages there's a photo of Davey and his brother with EC, taken this week, at a recording studio in LA. Davey's brother says he's there to assist on the recording of EC's "new album."

Anyone know anything about this? Would be terrific news!

Re: Imposters March 7, 8, & 9 New York!!! NOW NOW NOW

I'll admit this is rather picayune point, but.....

The Gigography has this show listed as being in "New York." It should really say "Brooklyn." Fer Chrissakes, by population it's the fourth-largest "town" in the country!

Okay...so we've had Spinning Songbook, then Imperial Bedroom, now another gimmicky repackaging of the repertoire...with a tossed-off come-on about "new songs" to give it a sense of freshness and get the true believers on board. Far be it from me to sniff at EC/Imposters remaining an active...

Re: Imperial Bedroom & Other Chambers -Milwaukee, WI, Riverside Theatre , July 16 2017

Thanks, FaveHour! That was great. I've long wondered: I assume (maybe incorrectly) that the live videos on this forum are, at least mostly, uploaded by members. But maybe not....cuz it always seems it's the same old greatest hits (Alison, Detectives, PIU, PLU, etc.) that get featured. I'd think that...

Agreed. Also, it seems his voice has lost a little something. I think perhaps age is catching up with him.

Re: Elvis 'Detour', Oslo (Norway), February 27, 2017

Only 21-song setlist at Bergen?

Am I the only one getting the sense that these Scandinavia shows--maybe owing to some listless audiences--have been deeply underwhelming?

Had he done "Detour" there already? Cuz the shtick seems a bit tired.

Re: Elvis , Detour, Gothenburg Feb. 23rd 2017

Gothenburg is Sweden's "second city," a pretty big, culturally aware place.

So....why no setlist?
