Not a lot of musicians can say they helped kickstart two awesome genres of music, but the legendary Alejandro Escovedo can say just that. He was in a punk band before punk existed, and his later country punk would become what’s now known as alt-country.
He’s coming to town to play with Los Lonely Boys this Saturday, but FIRST Grimey’s has managed to snag him for an early 3:30pm in-store.
Be there, or miss some awesome music.
Oh, and here’s his recent album Big Station, for your listening pleasure.
