Last night marked the live debut of Elvis Costello and The
Roots at Brooklyn
Bowl in NYC. The two acts teamed up for the collaborative album Wise Up Ghost,
which came out today. Elvis and The Roots came together at the Bowl on Monday night for a
billed as "one night only."
The two acts focused on material from Wise Up Ghost, but also threw in the
occasional cover and some of Costello's best-known songs. Vocalists La Marisoul and Diane
Birch also guested at different points during the lengthy set. Exceptional fan-shot video
of most of last night's show has already surfaced thanks to Larry Rulz. Watch Elvis
