Last night Elvis Costello and the Roots celebrated the release of their robust collaborative LP Wise Up Ghost with a one-off, sold out concert at Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg. Along with funky cuts from the new album and slightly revamped takes on classic Costello (“Watching The Detectives,” “Shabby Doll,” an extended “I Want You”), the group tackled the Specials’ “Ghost Town” and John Lennon’s “I Found Out.” Watch video of those two covers below.

Wise Up Ghost is out today on Blue Note and Costello and the Roots will play Fallon tonight and Thursday. Check out our ranking of Costello’s discography, from worst to best, here.
