Calling all Veronicas. Calling all Alisons. Calling all of everyone: A group of Boston musicians are coming together to pay tribute to the legendary Elvis Costello next month, and the lineup is an all-star squad of our city’s music scene.
“It’s a melancholy time we are all living through here in Boston where the music is concerned,” reads the event description. “Our beloved T.T.’s is no more, and Davis Square stalwart Johnny D’s will soon sadly meet the same fate. The mood is dark, somber, bittersweet, nostalgic and filled with angst. Whose music could be more suitable for this lingering sadness than that of the one and only Declan Patrick MacManus?”
