Austin legend Alejandro Escovedo is one with his muse and his music. Over a lifetime spent traversing the bridge between words and melody, he has ranged over an emotional depth that embraces all forms of genre and presentation, a resolute voice that weathers the emotional terrain of our lives, its celebrations and despairs, landmines and blindsides and upheavals and beckoning distractions, in search for ultimate release and the healing truth of honesty. Sometimes it takes the form of barely contained rage, the rock of punk amid kneeled feedback; sometimes it caresses and soothes, a whispery harmony riding the air of a nightclub room, removed from amplification, within the audience. Alejandro Escovedo will be performing songs from his 30-year music career at the ACL Moody Theater Saturday Jan. 12. Pick up tickets HERE. If you can’t make it out or want to get pumped for the show, listen to his performance in Studio 1A with host Jody Denberg.
