Elvis Costello


The Terrapin

Elvis Costello stepped on stage to meet the roar of the sell-out crowd in Ritchie Colosseum. He opened the evening with "Black Sails in the Sunset" and continued to play all of his favorites, with barely a pause between each tune. "Accidents will Happen," "Alison," and "Love is War", sent crowd heads bopping "punk-style" up and down. The beat was so fast that the standing crowd was exhausted before the encore. Costello's show lasted approximately two hours, a rarity for the performer who usually plays for under an hour because he doesn't enjoy public appearances.

Squeeze

The opening group was "Squeeze," a local five man band, consisting of preps and punks. The band teased the crowd at times by playing offstage, and out of the crowd's reach. Their music was a popularized brand of punk that covered, "How Long (Has This Been Going On)" and "If I Didn't Love You I'd Leave You."
