ROCK | Elvis Costello 

I don't have a top 10 list of shows I've seen over the years; I simply can't do it. However, I do have a top two, and both of them are the same show: Elvis Costello at the Eastman Theatre. Costello played for four hours. In fact, his encore was almost longer than the first set. He had audience members come up on stage to determine what song came next by spinning a giant game show wheel. There was a lounge on stage. And then there was Costello playing and working his band through everything, including "Pump It Up" done in a flipped time signature I couldn't decipher if my life depended on it. His aim was infinitely true.

Elvis Costello and The Imposters performs Saturday, June 17, at CMAC, 3355 Marvin Sands Drive, Canandaigua. 7:30 p.m. $35-$95. cmacevents.com; elviscostello.com.
