Wow. I almost can't believe this, but apparently Elvis Costello is going to be performing at Great American Music Hall next month. That, in and of itself, is awesome, because it's a small-ish venue and a great place to see a show. But... for this particular show, he's got the original band that played on My Aim Is True together to play those songs. This is apparently the first time they're playing together in public?? Amazing!
The down side is that it's a benefit show, and tickets are a hundred bucks a pop. Now, anyone who knows me knows that I love me some Elvis Costello, but it was a fairly long time ago when I got sick of paying $60 a ticket for his shows, so $100 is unlikely, even given the unique circumstances. Plus, I'd hate to shell out that kind of cabbage and then have them JUST play that album. I mean, it's a great record, but it's uh... short, and there's a lot of stuff on a lot of other records I'd want to hear as well.
Alas, I think I'm gonna pass on this one.
