Last night (June 5), Elvis Costello took the stage on the Late Show with David Letterman with a spur-of-the-moment booking, and that’s not the only thing he did last-minute.
Other acts playing the 2014 edition of the festival include Danny Brown, The Head and the Heart, Schoolboy Q, J. Cole, Neon Trees, Valerie June, Hooray For The Riff Raff and Julianna Barwick.
In fairness, June 24 and 25 won’t be the first time Elvis Costello plays the legendary Carnegie Hall. He has taken the stage there before with Spinal Tap.
The lyrics are from songs written in 1967, when Dylan was working on ‘The Basement Tapes.’
A longtime country music fan, Elvis Costello has taken his appreciation a step further, releasing a remix of a previously ‘lost’ Cash song, “She Used to Love Me a Lot.”
“He Stopped Loving Her Today” makes the list, of course, but there are many more Jones recordings that are equally devastating. Our list also includes honky tonkers, a twisted gospel song and even a stunning love ballad.
Last night (October 17) at Cipriani’s on Wall Street in New York City, a handful of legendary artists– Little Steven Van Zandt, Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, Elvis Costello and Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers– came together to pay tribute to Darlene Love.
Costello addresses the “angry young man” persona from the early years of his career as a preamble for what turns out to be his first comment in decades about the racial slurs he made in 1979 during a drunken conversation with Stephen Stills and Bonnie Bramlett.
Avicii takes the top album this week, “an album in love with pop history—and pop’s tradition of toying with pop history.”
A part of his charm is that Costello follows his wandering interests, generating unexpected works. You never know what will come next: a rocker, a charmer, an evolution or a retrospective.
The two institutions fuse simmering neo soul, rock, and beat poetry on their first collaboration together.
