Alejandro Escovedo at Clearwater Festival in 2009 (more by Chris La Putt)
There's a popular forum on Reddit where "former groupies" are telling stories of their experiences with rock stars. The forum got hundreds of responses, including blurbs like this:
Not groupy but production manager here. Working Alejandro Escovedo concert a few years ago and there were 2 young teenage girls in attendance wearing home made shirts with his name all over it. During the solo acoustic opening act he invited the girls on stage because it was one of their birthdays. After he played a song they exited side stage and ran back to Alejandro's dressing room. When they barged in they saw him doing cocain. He yelled at them to leave and they spent the rest of the concert crying at the entrance waiting to get picked up.Of course we don't know for sure if any of these stories are true, but at least in Alejandro's case, we know he has had an interesting life.
Speaking of Alejandro, he recently announced dates including three nights in NYC happening at City Winery on January 15, 17, and 18. On 1/15, he'll be joined by Joe Ely, on 1/17 he's playing an "acoustic evening with strings," and on 1/19 he'll be joined by his band The Sensitive Boys, who most of his other tour dates are with. Tickets to all three NYC shows are on sale now.
All tour dates are listed, along with some videos, below...
Instrumental hip hop producer RJD2, who has a handful of solo material along with a number of collaborations with rappers in the Def Jux/Rhymesayers realm (among other things), will be celebrating New Year's Eve in NYC with a show at Gramercy Theater (12/31) with Com Truise and Chrome Sparks (DJ). Tickets for that show are still available and we also have two pairs to giveaway. Details on how to win are below.
In more year-end celebrations for RJD2, we spoke to him about his top ten things of 2012. Only four of them are albums and only three of those albums came out this year, but it's a pretty awesome list and you can check out the entire thing below.
