Nick Lowe In Concert

Nick Lowe performs at Merriweather Post Pavilion.

Opening for Wilco in front of thousands of people Sunday night, Nick Lowe performed with just an acoustic guitar at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Md. It was a fine moment for a singer-songwriter who's never quite found the audience he deserves. But if the standing ovation after "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding" was any indication, maybe the audience has finally found him.

Lowe performed material from his new album, The Old Magic, as well as classic songs. But he also tipped his hat to Elvis Costello with a version of "Alison," a song Lowe originally produced for Costello's breakthrough record, My Aim Is True.
