Costello changes Boise concert - Casper/Bozeman cancelled

Musician Elvis Costello's Monday concert at the Big Easy Concert House
in
Boise was postponed because he was sick.

Costello will perform Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., according to Big Easy
representatives. Costello canceled concerts in other states so he could
stay
in Boise to perform, they said.

The singer apparently was suffering from vocal problems caused by an
illness. He tried to sing during a sound check but couldn't, Big Easy
representatives said.

Tickets for Monday's concert will be honored Wednesday. People who
can't
make that date may call their ticket provider about a possible refund.

The date change for Costello means the scheduled Wednesday performance
by
Electric Six at the Big Easy is in flux. Promoters said they will
either
find a new location for the band or start their concert later Wednesday
at
the upstairs stage at the Big Easy.

I'd forgotten about that MDM. I wonder if the local media will be seeking interviews from him.

He can get his money back now it's cancelled so at least that's a bonus.
international laughing stock...

Joker man writes to alt.fanelviscostello-

Was standing online to see EC tonight in Boise. Doors were supposed to
open at 6:30. Heard "What's so Funny..." as the one and only
soundcheck song. Thought that a bit odd.

Then, about 7:15 they told us that Elvis "has no voice" and will be
cancelling his next two shows, but our tix will be good for a
re-scheduled show on Wednesday, April 13th.

In case anyone in those cities reads this group, I thought I'd give you
an early heads-up...

So Elvis has an unexpected few days in a town - what might he do with himself ? And should we watch out for what inspiration he might draw from his surroundings ?

Current Exhibitions


James Castle
-
Saturday, March 26, 2005 - Sunday, June 05, 2005

Since first displaying his art in 1963, the Boise Art Museum has collected the work of Idaho artist James Castle (1900-1977) through purchase and donation. As a result, the Museum has the largest collection of Castle's work held by a museum. The exhibit, James Castle, will feature all eighty-three works from the Museum's permanent collection and will be accompanied by a scholarly catalog published in conjunction with the show. This will be the first time the Museum's collection has been exhibited and documented in its entirety. James Castle, a self-taught artist, was born deaf and never learned to read, write or use sign language. He did, however, develop a highly sophisticated means of communication through drawing and devoted a lifetime to the creation of his own unique images. He produced drawings, assemblages and books representing landscaps, interiors and fantasy forms. Castle ignored traditional drawing materials in favor of discarded cardboard, scraps of paper and homemade charcoal and dyes.

Katy Stone - FALL
Saturday, January 08, 2005 - Sunday, October 16, 2005

Seattle artist Katy Stone will create a new, site-specific installation for the Museum’s sculpture court. The new artwork, created from several thousand streams of hand-painted acetate, will be accompanied by smaller, thematically related pieces. All of Stone’s artwork will interact with the architectural elements of the sculpture court’s walls, windows, and floor. The artist’s work is an intriguing coalescence of drawing, painting, and sculpture. Using acrylics, she first paints images on clear acetate, then cuts the images to shape, and installs them in various formations to be viewed as a sculpturally projected painting. The delicate acetate interacts with light and air to produce shimmering, biomorphic reflections as well as deep shadows. Stone’s inspiration comes from the forms and forces of nature, and her work revolves around themes that recur in nature – the vital fluids of water and blood, physical states of falling or sprouting, and impressions of lightness and weight.

Elvis Costello posters hang on the walls of Sonic Rainbow as Lauren Bayert helps costumers on Tuesday in downtown Casper, Wyo. Bayert was one of many Casper fans who were disappointed by the sudden cancellation of Costello’s concert at the Casper Events Center, which was scheduled for Wednesday. He also canceled a Tuesday concert in Bozeman.
