Elvis Costello Amoeba Records San Francisco

In what must be the smallest tour in his musical history,  Elvis Costello launched a mini-tour with Amoeba Music today, June 22nd. At 12:00 p.m. Costello performed at the Amoeba San Francisco location then will perform at Amoeba Hollywood location at 8 p.m. Costello also signed limited amount of  copies of his new album Secret, Profane & Sugarcane after both performances.  The purchase of the CD or vinyl will include a silk screen poster commemorating the event.

Backing Costello is Grammy-winning singer/songwriter, Jim Lauderdale, who also appears on his new release.

The capacity crowd was wound around the side of the store at 10AM and once inside wated patiently for the show to start roughly two hours later. Elvis was in fine form inviting people to move in closer and to sing along with the chorus of several songs.

Amoeba will stream the Hollywood performance live on Amoeba.com at 8 p.m. pst.

    Hey, we met you in line for this show. We also got a chance to meet Jim Lauderdale after the show. We’re on our way to see him tonight in Knoxville. He hosts the “Tennessee Shines” radio show for WDVX.

    Wanted to remind you to check out wdvx.com.

    Also local hero Scott Miller. You might enjoy some of his old stuff with the V-Roys too. They recorded on Steve Earles old label. Take care.
