I have a good friend who may, possibly, be the biggest Alejandro Escovedo fan in the world.
This picture is of Alejandro, not my friend; although, they wear the same glasses.
Anywho, the sixty-ish singer/songwriter makes his home in Austin, but comes through New Orleans fairly often these days. I feel as though I know the man (Escovedo, that is), even though every time he comes through town I have to work or something. Tonight is no different. Ho hum.
But, you can go! It’s at 8pm at House of Blues (Parish). $15. 8pm! You don’t even have to call in sick tomorrow!
Here’s Alejandro playin’ and testifyin’ at Jazz Fest a couple of years ago.
