TOMBALL, TX – Texas Troubadour Alejandro Escovedo is playing a show at Tomball’s Main Street Crossing on May 23.
Alejandro Escovedo continues his US tour in support of his latest album, Big Station (Fantasy/Concord Music Group). Produced by Tony Visconti, Big Station finds the ever-evolving Texas rocker highly-charged with spirit and purpose. The album’s hard snap and sharp arrangements recall much of the great music Escovedo absorbed as it blasted out of AM and FM radios throughout the 60’s and 70’s. Largely co-written with frequent collaborator Chuck Prophet, the album’s 12 songs bristle with tension and hope as Escovedo fights to keep faith in a changing world and hold onto love.
Big Station follows Escovedo’s critically lauded 2010 album Street Songs of Love, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and earned rave reviews from Rolling Stone, The NY Times, The Wall Street Journal, Entertainment Weekly, and many more. Of Escovedo’s legendary live shows, The Washington Post’s Joe Heim wrote, “If I could only go to one more concert, I just might choose to go see Escovedo, who combines genius and spirit like almost no one else.”
As of late, Escovedo has been in the studio working on his next album. Most recently, Escovedo curated the SXSW Lou Reed Tribute show and played select dates with Peter Buck.
