Elvis Costello & the Imposters

When: Sun., April 29, 7:30 p.m. 2012

Elvis Costello was the crest of New Wave, blending Steve Nave's bustling, inventive keyboards, a punchy rock undercurrent and the most biting wit in rock. If all he had to show for his career were his first four albums, he could stand proud. Instead, Costello's reinvented himself several times with country-rock, an album with Macca, an astounding blues record, chamber quartets and jazz outings. While the last two incarnations were relative duds, Lou Reed would kill for his hit/miss ratio. His lyrical virtuosity and continuing relevance give him a slight nod over the Beach Boys' reunited oldies act. —Chris Parker
