Seeing Elvis Costello share a bill with Nick Lowe is always a special

occasion for anyone at all familiar with Costello’s storied past,

holding out the promise of the two old friends sharing the spotlight

arrived as Costello was nearing the end of a brilliant, unpredictable

performance whose more surreal moments were further enhanced by the

sweltering heat inside a theater whose air conditioning unit appeared to

have taken the holiday off to spend time with its family.
