Album Attack: Elvis Costello

Jesse Wilder’s Album Attack returns with probably its most ambitious night yet—not one but two ad-hoc bands covering not one but two Elvis Costello albums, with no openers or anything else to derail from the overall Costello quotient. For anyone who’s ever particularly cherished the controversial Saturday Night Live performance of “Radio Radio,” which you should start cherishing soon as you get a chance if you can find a surviving copy on the Internet, this is your night of nights: members of American Males, Cowboy and Indian, Grow Young, California Lions and Rockford splitting to present Armed Forces and (a personal favorite) This Year’s Model in their Elvis-y entirety.
