NYC tonight

I went to a sold-out Elvis Costello and the Imposters concert at the Beacon Theater tonight, a lovely old gilded playhouse, and it was dynamite.

On the way home from the concert on entrance to 50th Street subway station: Lady of the hour.

Great article on Gaga in Sunday New York Times by Jon Pareles. He understands her and is a good writer. By contrast, a snarky and semi-snide review of her new album, Born This Way in USA Today this morning, Monday May 23rd, by Elysa Gardner. Get over it, Elysa!

See ya tomorrow.

  1. i love elvis costello and put him up there as being one of the best if not the best concert i have ever been to. and nyc – lucky enough to have been there too. wow. coming from little ol' auckland……………. and the gaga – well i might have to warm up to that one but our 14 year old daughter is most excited that you give her a tick. hey, one more thing – loved the trip to louie's – thanks. enjoy the big apple!

  2. Your NYC venture is making me feel like such a MORON. I live a ferry ride away from the city and haven't been there in 20 years! You're showing me what I'm missing. I'm from New Joisy (does that explain things?)

  3. H! I was a cocktail waitress at the Riveria Theater in Chicago mid 80's. Elvis Costello came thru and needed go go dancers for his stage cage. I did the deed. Funny to see he still has a go go dancer in a cage!
