You would think in all my years I would have seen Elvis Costello at least once, but I never have.  Until last Sunday evening.  Olivia drove up from Columbia and we made the trek to Cary for his show with the SugarCanes.

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  Elvis has been all over the musical road with some music that I truly love and some that… well… I’d rather listen to something else.  When I learned that this show was going to have more of a country/blue grass feel  I started getting eapprehensive.

The first couple of songs were complete unknowns to me, but it wasn’t bad.  And then they played Blame it on Cain and I knew things would be fine.  The core set was 21 songs.  The encore included another nine for total concert time at just two hours, thirty minutes.  There were ten songs that I recognized and Olivia reported that he covered 11 of 13 songs from his latest CD (which I had not heard).

All-in-all a good show and I’m glad I got to see him.

p.s. Olivia, being the diehard fan actually got her picture taken with Elvis. As you might imagine, she was a wee bit excited afterwards.
