Last night I traveled down to Variety Playhouse with an old buddy to hear Elvis Costello discuss his new book. It was an enjoyable time. The best part was Costello’s nod to his first concert in Atlanta – a show at the old Capri Theater co-billed with Talking Heads in late November, 1977. It didn’t sell out (and that wasn’t a particularly big venue). But I was one of those there, along with the friend who went with me last night.
Anyway, here’s a concert clip from a few months later of a song he played that night, “Watching the Detectives”.
