Crossing borders, jumping barriers, taking risks, betting it all: that’s the path Alejandro Escovedo has been taking in his lifelong search for the heart of rock and roll. In support of Alejandro’s latest album, The Crossing, he has embarked on The Crossing Tour with Don Antonio.
The Crossing is about his rock and roll journey: searching, but not necessarily finding, eyes and ears open all the way. The Crossing tells the tale of two boys, one from Mexico, one from Italy, who meet in Texas to chase their American rock and roll dreams. They discover a not-so-welcoming, very different place from the Promised Land they imagined, with cameos from the likes of Wayne Kramer of the MC5, Joe Ely and James Williamson of the Stooges to show the boys the way.
Escovedo’s trailblazing career began with The Nuns, San Francisco's famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to Texas bred darlings, True Believers, through countless all-star collaborations and tribute album appearances and finally a series of beloved solo albums beginning with 1992's acclaimed Gravity, Escovedo has earned a surplus of distinctions: No Depression magazine's ‘Artist of the Decade’ Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association's Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006, just to name two.
His last album Burn Something Beautiful was co-produced, written and recorded with Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey. As an official showcasing artist, the Alejandro Escovedo Band with Don Antonio debuted The Crossing at the Americana Music Association Festival 2018 at the Americana Music Stage, hosted by WMOT Roots Radio, NPR Music and World Cafe.
They have backed numerous American acts in Europe, but this will be their first ever tour of the U.S. Luckily for you, he’s making his way to Houston to show you exactly what it means on January 6th at Heights Theater! Tickets are available for purchase online and in-person starting at $24.
