Elvis has been added to this,

so obviously he's doing the US around then. Right after his Dublin gigs-not.

Whoa, HUGE news. This is going to be a great show, and I'm there! Hopefully they will be on a Texas swing, with multiple chances to catch them. :D

Elvis Costello's Puke Stain

Ricky Williams, pro football star, retired suddenly yesterday. Apparently, he thought the entry yesterday about my future dominance of the Tour de France could also be applied to the NFL. Good thinking, Ricky, although such conjecture would be immediately dismissed by anyone who witnessed the Cody Powell era of Corey Elementary Football. If you needed someone to eat all the orange slices while sitting on the bench, I was your man. When it came to the tackling, running, and catching part, not so much. In retrospect, I had a lot more to gain by practicing my citrus appreciation skills than I did with football, since one of those arens is a lot more conducive to short, slow wusses like myself than the other. In closing, you may come back to your sport, Mr. Williams, where I promise you'll be safe from a dreaded encounter with Pigskin Powell.

It looks like right now, the Tricentennial is set to fall on the weekend of the ACL Festival. Maybe if I play my cards right, that can be Elvis Costello's puke stain in my living room. If he's anything like fellow British superstar Warwick Davis, we shouldn't be stocking up on the 409 quite yet. But really, any musical superstars are welcome to crash here that weekend. It just seems silly to blow $40 a night for some fancy room at the Best Western when they could throw down a pallet on my living room floor for free. Did I mention that everyone who stays here gets FULL X Box priviledges? Make your reservations early, because this bitch is filling up real quick-like (note: air mattress reserved for the Pixies).

Anyway, I'm super jazzed about ACL Festival this year. Last year was great, although I spent a large part of the day completely separated and lost from Danza and Dumpasaurus. Surprise surprise, when I found them, they were making out by the port-o-potties. It's called will power, gentlemen; I suggest you look into it. Despite that, I'm definitely doing the three day thing this time. I won't even leave to sleep. I'll make myself a bed of dirt and spilled beer, and become one with Zilker Park. I'll be a cult hero by the time I'm escorted off the grounds.

This is the most incredible lineup I've ever seen. Well, at least in a very long time.

I hope everyone within driving distance from Austin will GO!!!!!!!!!

Now I am angry. We already booked our flights and really wanted to see both EC and Jack Johnson. Unfortunately, they are playing at the same time on two different stages. Also, EC is only playing an hour so it will probably be a greatest hits show of songs we have heard many times. So, we are cancelling.

Why??? There are an insane number of great acts to see. Wilco, Solomon Burke, The Pixies, etc, etc, etc. And when would Elvis vs. Jack Johnson ever be a competition. See Elvis!!

Review by Melanie Haupt in the Austin Chronicle on September 24 2004.

"Hot Fun in the Summertime
Austin City Limits Music Festival 2004 wrap-up

Elvis Costello & the Imposters
Zilker Park, Sept. 19

If you could hear the din through the tin, you were luckier than most of the horde gathered at the Cingular stage late Sunday afternoon. Stymieing even the most seasoned ACL strategists, the powers that be conspired to keep enjoyment of the original Napoleon Dynamite at a minimum by jacking with the sound so violently as to inspire debate that the speakers might be oscillating, or perhaps being covered intermittently with a giant blanket. Launching the badly mixed, tinny set with no intro (or maybe there was, but we certainly didn't hear one), Costello & his Imposters kicked off their set with a wheeze rather than a bang. They finally kicked into high (but muffled) gear, the set list crowded with songs from Costello's latest album, The Delivery Man, including "Monkey to Man," "Country Darkness," and "Needle Time," which the gathered crowd of Declan devotees seemed to enjoy, despite the problems. Costello, clearly a madman, as evidenced by his tie and dark suit in the scorching September afternoon, delivered what seemed to be a serviceable set, but this assertion is based almost entirely upon visual evidence. None of the advantageous listening spots for this stage (top of the hill, right of the stage, behind the sound board) proved to be any more prime than the others. It's a shame that one of rock's elder statesmen ended up leaving the sweating crowd cold through no fault of his own. Perhaps we, like The Delivery Man, should blame it on Cain. –

Melanie Haupt"
