Everyday I Write The Hook...Victor Stranges Plays The Elvis Costello Songbook with Mike Dupp
The Drunken Poet, 65 Peel Street, West Melbourne
Victor will be joined by piano extraordinaire, Mike Dupp, for an evening of Elvis Costello hits and obscurities. The performance is not a costume changing tribute show, rather an affirmation of Stranges' love for the songs of Costello.
The acoustic show draws from Costello's first twenty years of making records, from My Aim Is True (1977) to All This Useless Beauty (1996). The songs are stripped back, revealing their subtlety, glorious structures and remaining faithful to the original album arrangements.
