Elvis Costello & the City of Hope

Unusual for this blog to run an item that is promotional in nature, but we make an exception here for several reasons: 1) it is for a good cause; 2) Elvis Costello remains one of our favorite artists; and 3) you can still pick up a souvenir guitar signed by Elvis at a reasonable price.

Here's the scoop. Universal Music Group contacted the blog about promoting a charity auction that benefits the City of Hope and its cancer research programs. What's being auctioned? Well, an Epiphone acoustic guitar and case, autographed by Elvis Costello. As of this writing, bids stand at just over $400. Act quickly though. The auction ends Monday, June 15.

Why not put a bid in to help the cause? And if not, well, then go here to read our review of Elvis' latest Secret, Profane and Sugarcane, which includes a video of one of the new tunes. Thanks for letting us interrupt the normal flow for this announcement.

(The promotional photo of Elvis Costello is from Lost Highway Records, a division of Universal Music Group. Elvis Costello and the Sugarcanes continue their world tour tomorrow, Sunday, June 14, with a concert in Cary, North Carolina.)
