Alejandro Escovedo at Clearwater 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
Alejandro Escovedo

Alejandro Escovedo, who just guested with Bruce Springsteen at SXSW along with Arcade Fire and others for a performance of "This Land Is Your Land," is sticking around in his home state of Texas this month and next for a few more shows in the area. But before he heads out on a European tour in June, he'll stop by NYC for a show at Bowery Ballroom on June 5. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

June 5th is also the day Alejandro will be releasing a new record, His own PR says:

Alejandro Escovedo will release his 11th solo album 'Big Station,' June 5th, 2012 on Fantasy Records/Concord Music Group. Produced by Tony Visconti, 'Big Station' finds the ever-evolving Texas rocker highly-charged with spirit and purpose. The album's hard snap and sharp arrangements recall much of the great music Escvovedo absorbed as it blasted out of AM and FM radios throughout the 60's and 70's. Largely co-written with frequent collaborator Chuck Prophet, the album's 12 songs bristle with tension and hope as Escovedo fights to keep faith in a changing world and hold onto love.

Why a Canadian band is singing "this land is your land"?

Posted by ME | April 3, 2012 9:51 AM

It is definitely blocked. You would have noticed much more over the past few days but the movement was on hiatus.
