Elvis Costello fans may want to check out Jon Brion's next couple of shows at Largo in Hollywood, where the triple-threat artist (Brion's an acclaimed producer-singer-musician) plays his eclectic brand of kitchen-sink pop every Friday. Costello, along with T-Bone Burnett and Sam Phillips (who are married), showed up during Brion's set last week and promised to return in a "couple of weeks" to perform with him. (Recent past guest artists have included Michael Stipe--who recalled R.E.M.'s early days opening for the likes of Ratt--and drummer Josh Freese. Currently, Brion's "house" band is Grant Lee Buffalo.) . . .
