90.5 The Night Present Alejandro Escovedo

90.5 The Night is proud to present Alejandro Escovedo on the stage at The Strand Center For The Arts on Sunday September 4th at 7:00PM.  You can buy tickets online at strand.org

Austin troubadour Alejandro Escovedo’s journey has taken him from Texas to California to New York and back again to Texas, encompassing a breadth of music as varied as the many bands he was part of before embarking on a solo career. In the 1970s, he surfaced on San Francisco’s punk scene, a guitarist in the Nuns; Rank & File helped unite the disparate worlds of punk and country in the 1980s; and after he moved back to Austin, the True Believers combined all manner of Americana music in a harbinger of what was to come in Alejandro’s solo career which begun in 1992 with the album Gravity.


Since ‘Gravity’ he has released 10 solo albums including ‘The Boxing Mirror,’ released after a dangerous bought with Hepatatis C and produced by John Cale, the autobiographical ‘Real Animal’ in 2008 and his most recent effort, ‘Street Songs Of Love,’ featuring Bruce Springsteen, Ian Hunter, and produced by Tony Visconti.
