Alejandro Escovedo at Club Helsinki Tonight, January 6


Legendary rocker Alejandro Escovedo brings his unique punk-infused, roots-rock sound to Club Helsinki in Hudson tonight. Escovedo is joined by the Burn Something Beautiful Band, which features Peter Buck of R.E.M., Scott McCaughey of Young Fresh Fellows, Kurt Block of Fastbacks, and Linda Pitmon of the Baseball Project.

Here is some info from

Texas-raised Mexican-American Alejandro Escovedo – the uncle of pop-funk star Sheila E – is a one-time punk-rocker mostly playing original alt-country music since before there was such a term. His music today ranges from Velvet Underground-style drone rock to classic punk to Los Lobos-like Chicano rock to Rolling Stones covers to idiosyncratic, character-based visionary music along the lines of Tom Waits.
In recent years, Escovedo has teamed with Helsinki favorite Chuck Prophet for songwriting and Tony Visconti (David Bowie) for producing. Escovedo credits Prophet for the hints of lightness and humor that have been creeping into his work the past few years.

Tonight’s show will also include an opening band – the indie-rock group, The Minus 5.
