On the one hand, you have an established celebrated songwriter with punk rock roots that continue to have a strong presence in the music he makes today. On the other, you have a punked-up rock-blues duo that tours nonstop and is quickly establishing a name for itself. Hello? This could be a very good bill, indeed.
And it is, my friend. Make sure that you catch Alejandro Escovedo and The Ghost Wolves tomorrow night at The Continental Club, 1315 S. Congress Ave. Escovedo plays at 10 p.m., followed by The Ghost Wolves at midnight. Guitars, high volumes, and no holding back. This is the life, man. Recommended.
