Video Du Jour: Alejandro Escovedo
Texas rocker Alejandro Escovedo has been a favorite of ours for a few years, and if you don’t know this man’s music do yourself a favor and check him out. His album Street Songs Of Love was hands-down one of the best mainstream rock albums of 2010, and the one before that, Real Animal from 2008, is also a classic.
Al and his awesome band will again anchor the Friday night lineup of South by San Jose at SXSW 2011, and if you can’t wait till March you can catch him every Tuesday night at The Continental Club in Austin. Here’s a conceptual video by Todd V. Wolfson of Escovedo playing the old Gun Club song “Sex Beat,” at the Continental and other points in Austin. You can feel the low-rent art love, can’t you?
