"The Sugarcanes played a short run of theatre dates from Boston through Washington, D.C., the United Palace, New York, Richmond, Virginia, Atlanta and Jacksoville, Florida and two headlining festival appearances, concluding at MerleFest in Wilkesboro, North Carolina.The Sonoma Jazz Festival happens this weekend (May 21-23) in Sonoma. A message from Elvis explaining (sort of) why he's canceling a couple of dates in Israel, and video from the April United Palace show, below...
E.C. sang, "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" during The Waybacks complete performance of "Abbey Road" in the afternoon, while Sugarcanes gave the first full band performance of "Dr Watson, I Presume", a reminiscence of the previous visit to the festival in 2007.
E.C. and The Sugarcanes were joined by Rebecca and Megan Lovell from their new band, Larkin Poe for finale performances of "The Scarlet Tide" and "The Crooked Line"
At the Sonoma Jazz Festival appearance on May 22nd, the band will feature, Jim Lauderdale, Dennis Crouch, Jeff Taylor, Mike Compton and Stuart Duncan. On this occasion Jerry Douglas will not be in the line-up, as he is attending a very important family event but the group will be augmented by multi-instrumentalist, Fats Kaplin and also feature Pete Thomas on drums."

February 4, 2010 -- Coming to you live from the Fitzgerald Theater, and beamed into movie theaters across the country, it's a special Thursday evening edition of A Prairie Home Companion. (Saturday's time-slot features a recorded version of the Thursday night show.) Featuring legendary English singer-songwriter Elvis Costello, sibling vocal powerhouses Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele, songstress Heather Masse, and the finest folk duo around, Robin and Linda Williams. Also with us, The Royal Academy of Radio Actors; Sue Scott, Tim Russell and Erica Rhodes, with both Tom Keith AND Fred Newman creating sound effects mayhem. All this, plus a punched-up Guy's All-Star Shoe Band, and of course, The News from Lake Wobegon. Two hours of non-stop fun on the big screen and -- a couple days later -- on your radio.That coordinated move theater event happened last night, but an encore presentation has been scheduled for February 9th. Participating movie theaters include Union Square, Chelsea Cinema and First and 62nd Cinemas.
For a more live musical experience, you can catch Elvis Costello and The Sugarcanes (Jerry Douglas, Stuart Duncan, Mike Compton, Dennis Crouch and Jeff Taylor) on tour this April. All dates haven't been announced yet, but a bunch are listed below and they include United Palace Theatre in NYC on Friday, April 23rd. Tickets for that show go on American Express presale on Wednesday, February 10 at 10am. General sale starts Saturday, February 13th at 10am. An Atlantic City show is already on sale.

Beast @ CMJ 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
Lady Gaga was nominated five times. Considering her rocket to fame over the last year, many were expecting more for her. But at least the contests are going to be really interesting: Beyoncé, [Taylor] Swift and Lady Gaga are going head to head in three of the most important categories: album, record and song of the year. Will one of them sweep, or will the lady vote be split?Neko Case, Imogen Heap, Phoenix, Silversun Pickups, David Byrne, Wilco, Death Cab for Cutie, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs are some of the other familiar names in the list of Grammy nominees this year. As Ben Sisario in the NY Times alludes, the nominations are a complete joke and predictable... but fun to look at anyway. Nobody expects Animal Collective to get picked, despite their soon-to-be status of being one of the highly rated artists of the year (and decade maybe).
One of the usual complaints about the Grammys is that it over-rewards older, established, familiar acts at the expense of newer, fresher ones. MGMT, the Brooklyn synth-rock duo, was nominated for best new artist, a big coup although not unexpected. But some of the shoulda-been names that have been circulated and Tweeted: Grizzly Bear, another acclaimed Brooklyn group; Regina Spektor, a young New York songwriter who started in the underground and has found some mainstream popularity; Diane Birch, a young soul-style singer, just the revivalist type the Grammys usually adore; and the Decemberists, an alt-folk-rock band from Portland, Ore., that released an ambitious concept album this year. [NY Times]
One surprise (for me anyway) came this year in the video category. Montreal's Beast were nominated for "Mr. Hurricane". That video with a list of some of the other nominees, below...

"Sundance Channel will premiere the second season of its critically acclaimed music/talk original series "Spectacle: Elvis Costello with..." on Wednesday, December 9, 2009 at 10:00pm et/pt. "Spectacle: Elvis Costello with..." combines the best elements of talk and music television and lets viewers in on intimate conversation and performance with host Costello and his guests ranging from legendary performers to promising new artists...Meanwhile, the first season of Spectacle is coming out on DVD ("in standard DVD and Blu-Ray formats"). And to promote that, Elvis will be appearing at Barnes & Noble Tribeca on Tuesday, November 17th, which is the same day the DVD is released. "Fans will have the opportunity to meet Elvis Costello and get their DVD or Blu- Ray copy signed by him." I guess no performance. His only upcoming date at the moment is Wilkes Community College's MerleFest in North Carolina on May 1, 2010.
"We're thrilled to launch a second season of 'Spectacle' on Sundance Channel," said Sundance Channel EVP and GM, Sarah Barnett. "The series offers viewers unprecedented access to artists through its mix of candid conversations and exciting musical performances. This season's A-list line-up is a testament to the level of respect that artists feel for Elvis Costello as a musician and entertainer."
"I am delighted that we can continue where we left off--making intelligent, and informative music programming," said Sir Elton John, one of the series' executive producers.
Elvis Costello commented: "In the words of the great Joe Strummer, 'Let's Rock again!'""

Rosanne & Johnny...
NY Times: On Tuesday [Oct 6], you're releasing your 14th album, "The List," a stirring leap into the past whose title refers to an actual list of 100 mostly country songs compiled by your father, Johnny Cash, in 1973 in an effort to expand your teenage taste in music beyond the Beatles.Rosanne Cash will debut of her The List material live at St. Ann's Warehouse in NYC on October 9th and 10th. Her album cuts the 100-song list down to 12 tracks. Some tickets to the Brooklyn shows are still on sale. Special guests aren't listed on the bill, but Rufus Wainwright, Jeff Tweedy, Bruce Springsteen, and Elvis Costello all appear on the album.
Rosanne Cash: He realized that I lacked something essential about my own musical genealogy, and he made this list for me. He said, "This is a template for excellence." He would play the songs for me on his guitar, and I sought out the records in the years afterward.
Did you have a good relationship with him?
It's hard to be close to a drug addict when they're active. He was erratic and withdrawn. But when I was 17, he said, Come with me, and I left the day after I graduated high school, went on the road with him. It was wonderful. He was clean and sober by that time. That's when he wrote the list for me, on the bus.
As an acclaimed songwriter who is just releasing your first album composed entirely of other peoples' songs, do you think "The List" will bring new life to old classics and raise the country-music consciousness of a generation of kids?
Not just young people. I have a 50-year-old, culturally astute girlfriend who heard a recording of "Sea of Heartbreak" and said, Did you write that? I said, Hardly. Not even close. The definitive version was recorded by Don Gibson in 1961.
She discussed the album and played material from it on September 23rd at WNYC's Souncheck - that show is streaming online.
More info on the album (art, tracklist) and a schedule of Rosenne's live and TV performances (including Letterman & Today show) are below...
Elvis Costello @ Bonnaroo 2009 (more by Graeme Flegenheimer)
SPECTACLE: ELVIS COSTELLO WITH... fuses the best elements of talk and music television and invites viewers to enjoy an intimate conversation between host Costello and his guests, punctuated by rare musical performances by Costello, his guests and a wide variety of musicians.Dates, lineups, and ticket info below....
Sundance Channel in the US, along with CTV in Canada have picked up the show for a second season, with taping scheduled at New York City's famed Apollo Theatre at the end of September.

The eighth annual Bonnaroo drew about 75,000 people to 700 acres of farmland here in Manchester, 60 miles from Nashville, for a lineup headlined by a jam band (the reunited Phish, playing three-hour shows on Friday and Sunday), rockers whose careers are measured in decades (Bruce Springsteen, Nine Inch Nails and David Byrne) and rappers who now qualify as old school (the Beastie Boys). [NY Times]Far from a complete representation of what went down in Tennessee from June 11-14, but nonetheless, one set of pictures from the fest (catching up this weekend), below...
Comedian and musician Dave Hill was summoned to Bonnaroo this past weekend to be part of both the comedy and music going-ons at the four-day Tennessee festival. I asked if he'd mind sharing his experiences (and pictures) with BrooklynVegan.com. He agreed. I regretted it. He sent it anyway, so here it is (starting with some MP3's by his rock band Valley Lodge), but warning: this post is not for the squeamish (NSFTS)...
Dave Hill tests face-melting licks out on some chairs
I've just returned from four magical days and nights at Bonnaroo, where my rock band Valley Lodge was the house band for Triumph the Insult Comic Dog's "Bonnapoo 2009" shows, which featured all sorts of awesomeness from Robert Smigel aka Triumph as well as sets from the great Todd Barry, Amy Schumer, and Kumail Nanjiani.
"Smigel performed four sets as Triumph at Bonnaroo, which annually hosts a comedy tent along with its smorgasbord of music acts, spread out over five main stages on a farm in rural Tennessee.The excitement started on Wednesday night when I got on a plane to Nashville with my close personal friend Janeane Garofalo, Pete Holmes, Kumail Nanjiani, and the rest of my rock band Valley Lodge. If you've ever wanted to be on a completely hilarious plane, you could do a lot worse than to have been on this plane. As you can probably imagine, all of us were running back and forth between our seats spraying each other with seltzer bottles and throwing pies in each others' faces. At one point, Pete Holmes came over to my seat to shake my hand and it turned out he had one of those joy buzzers on his finger. Man, was my face red. I got him back though by spraying him in the face with a prank flower I was wearing at the time. We both just laughed and laughed after this happened. He couldn't stay mad at me.
"My live act is a huge undertaking because Triumph kind of thrives on the immediate, discussing what everybody's thinking about," said Smigel while whisking past festival-goers in a golf cart, puppet on hand." [AP]
Once we got to Nashville, some unmarked vehicles took us all to Murfreesboro, the popular Tennessee town where we all stayed at the Doubletree Hotel, which is really classy. Because I snore and also like to get up to all sorts of hardcore banging in hotels, I had my own room. When I dropped off my bags, I looked around the room and got all excited about all the snoring and hardcore banging I would be doing in my room over the next few days and nights.
I haven't heard Neil Young's 8-CD box set Neil Young Archives, Vol. 1: 1963-1972 yet, but this could be my favorite box set of 2009 with over 40 previously unreleased tracks.
Aside from the Neil Young box set and the Elvis Costello disc, the week abounds with worthwhile releases. From what has already been sent my way, I can recommend Cass McCombs' Catacombs, Diane Birch's Bible Belt, Girl in a Coma's Trio B.C., Patrick Wolf's The Bachelor (which very well may make my year-end favorite albums list), and The Sounds' Crossing the Rubicon.
What new music can you recommend this week? What's on your shopping list? Did I miss any releases?

Unwigged & Unplugged & Elvis Costello @ the Beacon - 5/26/09 (andyg_flickr)
Last night (5/26) I caught the first of two performances of UNWIGGED & UNPLUGGED: An Evening with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer at the gorgeously restored Beacon Theater. As much as I love (and cannot imagine a life without) the music-centric films This Is Spinal Tap, A Mighty Wind, and Waiting For Guffman, the thought of an acoustic, out of character, 'greatest hits' set initially struck me as crass commercialism at its worst. And, hell, maybe it was crass commercialism at it's worst; but holy moly if those dudes didn't slap the smug, cross-armed look off my face within the first five chords.
Their re-orchestrations of Tap classics to fit a folk mold were awe-inspiring works of genius. Highlights from the set included Hell Hole, Saucy Jack, The Bulging River, Stonehenge, Start Me Up, A Mighty Wind, Eat At Joes, and Sex Farm. But the major holy shitballs moment of the evening was when the trio backed up ELVIS COSTELLO for an extremely ballsy rendition of Gimme Some Money. The event wasn't without its minor clams though. I felt that the show was about 30 minutes too long and that the stage banter was at times too long winded, self-indulgent, dated, and often unfunny (ie, poking fun at the lack of music played on MTV). That said, these guys can really play and sing and for the most part they had me busting a gut and admiring their very real skills as musicians. Add to that the brief video interludes featuring vintage, rare Tap footage and a couple of fan-made music videos, and I had myself one helluva time.
While looking around for a setlist of the show, I came across this livejournal entry that talks about a different Unwigged show, but nonetheless pretty closely describes the basic format and pacing of the Beacon show I saw. Catch them at the same venue, again tonight (5/27). Some videos from last night below...

Allen Toussaint @ Village Vanguard 5/20/09 (livingwithmusic)
The New Orleans pianist Allen Toussaint hinted at the scope of his musical lore in a whimsical solo montage halfway through his early set at the Village Vanguard on Tuesday [5/19] night. Fragments of old New Orleans songs (like "Big Chief"), classical pieces, boogie-woogie, "The Sound of Music" and other tunes interrupted one another and gradually mingled, giving barrelhouse flourishes to a Chopin prelude. After a few more segues Mr. Toussaint called Elvis Costello out of the audience to sing "Ascension Day," a song from the 2006 album they made together, "The River in Reverse." [NY Times]Allen Toussaint has been at the Village Vanguard since that Tuesday, May 19th show. That run continues through Sunday, May 24th.
The pianist is playing with the Bright Mississippi Band, a group that recently cut an album of the same name for Nonesuch. That band (on record and live) includes clarinetist Don Byron, trumpeter Nicholas Payton, bassist David Piltch, percussionist Jay Bellerose and guitarist Marc Ribot. Ribot just ended his weeklong 55th-birthday retrospective on Sunday, May 16th.
Watch a video of Costello and Toussaint on Letterman, with all Allen Toussaint tour dates (including Bonnaroo), below...
After meeting his biological father for the first time, GE powerhouse Jack Donaghy discovered his dad, professor Milton Greene, needed a kidney. Not being a potential organ donor himself, Mr. Donaghy turned to some very affluent friends in the entertainment world. This partnership created the phenomenon, "Kidney Now!' -- a benefit concert featuring some of the most recognizable names in the music industry. With the help of this song, Milton Green just might find the kidney match he needs and Jack Donaghy may be granted the gift of a father he never knew.Video from last night's episode of 30 Rock below...
Tickets are on sale (@10AM) for the upcoming Elvis Costello show at Beacon Theater. Elvis also plays Count Bastie Theatre in Red Bank one day earlier - tickets for that one don't appear to be online yet.
There are lots of pre-sales going on for the upcoming Elvis Costello show at the Beacon Theater. There's the ArtistArena presale (username: Elvis, password: Costello), but tickets to the NYC show are already sold out on that one. Then there's three separate presales starting at Ticketmaster at 10am - the WFUV one, the "venue" one, and the Live Nation one. The password to one of them is HESUGARCANE.
Secret, Profane & Sugarcane
Elvis Costello's new album 'Secret, Profane & Sugarcane' will be released by Hear Music on June 2nd.Elvis Costello has announced some of those June tour dates including June 9th in Red Bank, June 10th at the Beacon Theatre in NYC, June 13th at Bonnaroo, and June 19th in Telluride, Colorado for the Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday.
The record was produced by T Bone Burnett and recorded by Mike Piersante during a three-day session at Nashville's Sound Emporium Studio.
Joining Costello were Jerry Douglas (dobro), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Mike Compton (mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion) and Dennis Crouch (double bass), some of the most highly regarded recording artists and musicians in traditional American country music, Bluegrass and beyond.
Several of these songs, including "Down Among The Wines and Spirits", were given their first public performances during Costello's acclaimed solo appearances as part of "The Bob Dylan Show" in late 2007.
The album includes ten previously unrecorded songs. "Sulphur to Sugarcane" and "The Crooked Line", were co-written with T Bone Burnett while, "I Felt The Chill" marks Costello's second recorded songwriting collaboration with Loretta Lynn.
Costello revisits two songs from his catalogue in string band style. Both songs were originally written for Johnny Cash. "Hidden Shame" was indeed included on Cash's album, "Boom Chicka Boom"...
....Select US tour dates featuring musicians from the album -- dubbed "The Sugarcanes" -- will follow in June and August, 2009.

Every year Bonnaroo seeks to make history by offering unique and exclusive performances by rock's greatest legends as well as its most significant newcomers. A full list of confirmed acts follows, and more will be announced in the coming weeks.

Nine Inch Nails (who played Lollapalooza last year), Beastie Boys, David Byrne (who has two shows coming up at Radio City), Wilco, Al Green, Erykah Badu, TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs (who are also playing Coachella), Andrew Bird (who just played Carnegie Hall), The Decemberists, Bon Iver, Animal Collective (who are very popular right now), Neko Case, Jenny Lewis, Santogold, Grizzly Bear (who have a new album coming out), St. Vincent, Ted Leo, Crystal Castles, and many others are also on the bill according to the now-officially announced initial lineup.
Full (initial) 2009 Bonnaroo lineup below...
Jenny Lewis "with special guest Elvis Costello" (he sings the song on her album too) played Letterman last night (Nov 3). David introduced them while holding up the giant sheet of acid, but after they performed their song, Jenny was nowhere to be found and Elvis in turn became the next interviewed guest. They mostly discussed Elvis' new talk show. Elvis said 13 episodes are taped and ready to go (and implied there wouldn't be more than that if the show which debuts on the Sundance Channel on December 3rd is not successful). David seemed sincerely interested from the "you're doing what I do, but different" point of view. Johnathan Rice was also there playing guitar and singing backup. Video of the musical performance below...

"I remember the first time we played Long Island," a firm and fit Sting told Jones Beach about seven songs into The Police's Monday night show. "We played My Father's Place. Well, not my father's place, but your Father's Place. And then we came back and played the Nassau Coliseum."The Police & Elvis Costello are back at Jones Beach tonight (August 5). The Police also play MSG on Thursday. More pictures from last night's show below...
Nostalgia is good . . . in small doses. And last night's historic Police concert at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach hit the spot. For more than an hour and a half, the Anglo-American trio -- calling it quits (again) after Thursday's show at Madison Square Garden -- played with the exuberance of a band half its age. Say what you will about Sting, the man looks and sounds good. Still. Drummer Stewart Copeland and guitarist Andy Summers, though not as physically well-preserved as their bass-playing boss, have more chops than a kung-fu flick. Still.
Throw in opening act Elvis Costello and the Imposters (whose keyboardist, Steve Nieve, and drummer, Pete Thomas, are from the Attractions), and, well, you have the makings of a WLIR concert that could have taken place in the early '80s at the Malibu... [Newsday]
The ever-mutating Elvis Costello shifts gears once again by hosting a new talk show for Sundance Channel.Spectacle debuts Dec. 3. Elvis Costello plays Jones Beach with The Police tonight (August 4, 2008) and tomorrow.
Spectacle: Elvis Costello With..., unveiled Thursday, will combine live performances with musician shop talk as Lou Reed, Elton John, Tony Bennett and other guests go deep on the subject of influences and inspirations.
"I'm not trying to dig up dark secrets," Costello told journalists gathered for the Television Critics Association summer press tour. Instead, he said he hopes to "ask questions that these people haven't been asked a million times before." [Wired]
Rilo Kiley @ Terminal 5 (more by Kyle Dean Reinford)
Jenny Lewis will release a solo album Acid Tongue on Warner Bros Records in September. This is the follow-up to her internationally acclaimed 2006 album Rabbit Fur Coat (Team Love Records). The album announcement comes just weeks after Jenny wrapped a world wide tour in support of Rilo Kiley's Under The Blacklight album (Warner Bros Records, 2007).The album tracklist and tour dates below...
Some of Lewis' most steadfast collaborators appear on Acid Tongue: Johnathan Rice, Farmer Dave Scher, Jason Boesel, Jason Lader and M Ward. She also invited other notable musician friends into the fold, including Elvis Costello for a duet ("Carpetbaggers"), Chris Robinson (of The Black Crowes), Benji Hughes, Zooey Deschanel (of She & Him) & Vanessa Corbala (of Whispertown2000) on backing vocals, Paz Lenchantin (A Perfect Circle / The Entrance Band) and her sister Ana provided strings, Davey Faragher (of The Imposters) on bass, as well as Laurel Canyon's own Jonathan Wilson on guitar, and even members of Jenny's own family. Her sister Leslie Lewis provided backing vocals on two songs while her father, harmonica virtuoso Eddie Gordon makes a star turn on rumbling bass harp.
The all analog, no Pro-Tools sessions were all part of a shared aesthetic between Lewis, her producers, and her musician collaborators, working quickly and tracking her vocals entirely live and without embellishment. Recorded at Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, California in just 3 weeks, the album's tracks, disparate as they are, share a sparkling vitality; Lewis' voice has never sounded so expressive and the narratives have never been so hard-hitting and acerbic.
Elvis Costello's new album, Momofuku is at the top of my shopping list this week. Named after the inventor of the cup noodle, Momofuku Ando, the album is the strongest effort from one of my favorite singer-songwriters in years.
Even though the mainstream media is fawning over new albums by Clay Aiken and Neil Diamond (which is streaming at Spinner) this week, there are plenty of other worthwhile releases. From what I have already heard I can strongly recommend Animal Collective's Water Curses EP, The Long Blondes' Couples, Matmos' Supreme Balloon, The Morning Benders' Talking Through Tin Cans, Pattern Is Movement's All Together, and ((Sounder))'s Good Things Come and Go Like Bad Things.
What are you picking up this week? Are there any releases worth adding to the list?
Elvis Costello, Nick & Robyn, Grand Ballroom, NYC - April 9, 2008 (sketchguy)
Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe sing "Indoor Fireworks", then joined by Robyn Hitchcock for "If I Fell In Love" and "Mystery Train" during the amazing encore! [sketchguy]Tickets are now on sale for Nick Lowe's upcoming show at Maxwell's.
8pmRunning through April 4th, the anniversary schedule also features one more tribute night on April 3rd...
Elvis Costello Tribute Night featuring Jim Boggia, Leah Siegel, Jim Campilongo, Milton, Julia Darling, Brian Seymour, Genie Morrow, Rachel Loshak, Adam Levy, Jon Dryden, Teddy Goldstein, Joy Askew, Jim Allen, Ben Carroll, Tom Freund, Julia Greenberg and Ken Webb
Elliot Smith Tribute Night featuring Anne Heaton, Michelle Casillas, Kevin Johnston, Cat Martino, Julia Greenberg, Amanda Thorpe, Pal Shazar, Jules Shear, Anne Heaton, Greta Gertler, Sasha Dobson, Julia Darling, The Selfsame, Leah Siegel, Jimi Zhivago, Mamie Minch, Jesse Harris, Daru Oda, Lianne Smith, Leif ArntzenThe full schedule at the Living Room's site, though it appears that some bigger names have purposely been left off of it in the name of crowd control. Which nights do you recommend?
We are delighted to confirm that second concerts have been added at the Hollywood Bowl and at Jones Beach on May 28 and August 5 respectively.If they don't add any more shows and if Sting wasn't kidding when he said "There will be no new album, no big new tour, once we're done with our reunion tour, that's it for the Police.", then there's also the chance that the August 5th show will be their last show ever. More info and all the latest dates below.....
