Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe Will Play Each Others' Songs at Benefit Show

Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe fans, check this out: On October 1, the first night of Hardly Strictly Bluegrass' 10th anniversary festival, Costello and Lowe are playing a special benefit concert at Great American Music Hall in which they'll perform -- and, the promoters say, "bash" -- each others' songs. Lowe, of course, produced Costello's first five albums, and wrote "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding," one of Costello's signature songs.

The concert is a one-night-only benefit for the Richard de Lone Special Housing Project, a nonprofit that houses sufferers of Prader-Willi Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder. Tickets are $125 for general admission and $200 for dinner, and go on sale this Sunday. Obviously, the show sounds pretty amazing -- and it's for a good cause.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
