Caught Elvis Costello's "spinning songbook" show at the Wiltern Theater last night, one of the best nights of concert fun since the LAST time I saw him do the spinning songbook, way back in 1986 (!). Go-go-dancer, check, audience participation, check, the Imposters playing full tilt, check check check. To paraphrase Stephen Colbert, "great show, or greatest show ever?" I've probably seen EC twenty-five times and this one certainly rises very close to the top.
Even better, Costello was in amazing voice... he did a version of the lovely "All Grown Up" that sent a shiver up this old spine.
Tour is making its way around the country "as I type", so if you have any interest in Costello's music, this is a can't-miss show!
