1/13: Alejandro Escovedo at the Beachland

by

comment

Veteran Austin singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo has persevered through three decades of rough-and-tumble rock ’n’ roll and lived to make some great albums about it. Escovedo has seen his ballyhooed punk and garage bands the Nuns, Rank and File, and the True Believers come and go. He’s also eluded death after a bad bout of hepatitis. All the while, he’s delivered one stellar album after another while never quite connecting with mainstream music fans. Too bad, because Real Animal, his ninth solo record, begins with the rollicking “Always a Friend,” a confessional rocker with Springsteenian overtones (the Boss has even covered the tune in concert) that never lets up. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124). Tickets: $20. — Jeff Niesel
