We'll be flying into S.F Thursday morning for the Warfield show and then the Santa Rosa show the next night. I would love to meet those of you going. Anyone interested?

Hey Misha,
I don't think we can make brunch because in order for me to have turned this into a work trip I had to schedule an appointment to meet a supplier in Sonoma around 1p.m. Maybe a drink after the show or at the show?

Where can you get that EC medication you speak of??
I think we are resisting going to two shows, but only because
I can argue that the thrill is bigger with just one.
But the medication might be useful, because the temptation is still there, ..about a third of the set list
gets rotated...
it does not seem normal to want to go to two shows in a row

I'm totally going tonight, though none of the dates every worked out. Guess I'll be selling the ticket at the show to buy merch.

I'd like to meet some other fans to have dinner before the show, maybe around 630, if I can get there by then (school until 230 or 3 in Chico)

best bet is to GIVE ME A CALL around 5pm

Is it a library? No, it's a Costello concert
By Jim Harrington, CONTRIBUTOR



ELVIS Costello brings many things to mind. Turning off
the cell phone isn't usually one of them. But that's
exactly the situation a capacity crowd found itself in
Thursday as Costello brought his hushed, subdued and
mostly acoustic act to the Warfield in San Francisco.
In all, it was a fairly enjoyable night of music that
focused on Costello's latest release, "North," as well
as many obscure tracks. But it could have been much
more than it was. It was probably the wrong setting
for the show. The concert was a soft evening of
sentimental songs performed with voice, guitar and
piano and would have been better suited for a more
intimate venue such as Yoshi's. As it was, those with
the best seats near the stage received a far better
experience than those at the back of the venue.
Costello performed as if he were playing a small
nightclub, often moving away from the microphone and
allowing his words to drift softly into the night. For
their part, the audience members fervently tried to
keep the venue as quiet as a place of worship. It
worked fairly well but, at times, the extreme shushes
rang out more loudly than the music. To the few
noisemakers' defense, this was a tough show to remain
quiet through. Clocking in at roughly 140 minutes, the
concert was too long for the type of low-key material
presented. Also, an opening act would have helped
break up the monotony. Costello, 49, was in perfect
voice. He sounded strong and clear -- at least when he
was standing near the mic -- as he crooned his way
through "Green Shirt," "You Left Me in the Dark" and
"Brilliant Mistake." Those who came out expecting a
run through Costello's greatest hits were definitely
in the wrong building. The singer-guitarist basically
ignored his old singles in favor of more mature
efforts and tracks from "North," which can be seen as
a love letter to his new wife, jazz-star Diana Krall,
as well as a direct extension from his work with Burt
Bacharach. The crowd had to endure an hour of mostly
unknown songs before Costello finally dusted off a
classic. Luckily, it was worth the wait. Twenty-five
years after its release, "(What's so Funny'Bout)
Peace, Love and Understanding" is as relevant and as
poignant as ever.
