Alejandro Escovedo @ City Winery (NYC) in 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)

Hard-hitting, alt-country great Alejandro Escovedo is currently back at home in Austin, holding down a Tuesday night residency at the Continental Club. We're happy to say that his first out-of-state show of the winter season, will also be a Chicago one! On January 14th, he'll play both a 7 & 10PM acoustic set with assistance from backing band, The Sensitive Boys-member David Pulkingham. JT Nero and Allison Russell will open each show. Tickets are still available.

Escovedo's most recent album Street Songs of Love, came out in June of 2010. Download the album's title track and another called "Silver Cloud" at the top of this post.
