Bask in the legacy of the unmistakably talented Elvis Costello at Dr. Phillips Center

Cantankerous curmudgeon of musical and lyrical genius Elvis Costello has been troubling our headphones and speakers since time immemorial, weaving his way into the global social fabric in manners new wave, orchestral, power pop and beardy dad-rock, along with every string in between. Every intellectual music fan has a skinny-tied, bespectacled Costello thread within them, so to admit that we really DID like “The Other Side of Summer” is probably a moot point. Also, we could drop knowledge about his former band the Attractions or former producer Nick Lowe, or some Paul McCartney bits, but then we’d just sound like that asshole at the (now nonexistent) record store counter. Instead, we’ll just bask in the legacy of the oft-controversial, typically pointed, unmistakably talented man who once asked us to “Pump It Up” and leave it at that. Duly pumped.

ELVIS COSTELLO 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 17 | Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, 445 S. Magnolia Ave. | 844-513-2014 | drphillipscenter.org | $49.50-$99.50
