VIDEO: The Strokes & Elvis Costello - “Taken For a Fool” (Live at Madison Square Garden, New York City, NY, 4.1.11)

In what must have been an awesome surprise for the cooler Strokes fans at their sold-out show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden last night, the legendary power pop originator Elvis Costello played an unannounced opening set. According to Stereogum, Costello’s short set consisted of three fantastic early-career hits — “Pump It Up”, “Radio Radio” and “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace Love And Understanding?”. Afterwards, when the Strokes were well into their headlining set, Costello reappeared. Apparently to Casablancas’ surprise, he came back onstage guitar in hand to sing the hook to Angles' “Taken For a Fool”, an appropriate song, given the day, which if you ask me takes quite a lot from Mr. Costello's songbook himself. Costello pulls it off effortlessly, and looks pretty awesome doing it. Seeing him onstage playing such a rocking tune makes me wish he would go back to making music like that again, but I guess I should just be glad that he's making good music at all, regardless of genre. His recent Americana-influenced albums have actually been surprisingly good.
