Elvis Costello – Solo & w/ the Hammer of the Honky-Tonk Gods
Elvis Costello arrived as a sneering spitfire, the smartest and meanest artist in the first waves of 1970s British punk. In the years since he has ventured from loud & fast to consummate singer/songwriter of all genres. He masterfully leads a band and captivates as a solo act. The past few years found him revisiting This Year’s Model in Spanish and reconnecting with old bandmate Allan Mayes on an EP titled “The Resurrection of Rust.” He is spending the summer touring with The Imposters, occasionally including old friend Nick Lowe & Los Straitjackets.
