Elvis Costello concert: The famous Elvis Costello and his band “The Imposters” are playing this coming Friday at 20:30 in Poble Espanyol. With 30 albums behind his name, Elvis has had numerous hits over his 40 year career, having started in England in the 70s as part of the “new wave” movement. We personally like him even more since he is a prominent vegetarian, having collaborated with Paul McCartney earlier this year to promote vegetarian foods.
