Alejandro Escovedo at WDVX Today

Today (Tuesday) is going to be a big day at WDVX. Alejandro Escovedo is in town for a concert at the Bijou Theatre, and he’ll be dropping by the WDVX studio to chat with Program Director Tony Lawson before the show. Alejandro will likely share a few songs with us on the air as well. He’s scheduled to stop by around 4:00 (Eastern). You can listen to a stream of his appearance at the WDVX website.

Alejandro was in town around this same time last year… he played Tennessee Shines in January. For that show, he shared the stage with four other artists and played roughly only 35 minutes due to the nature of the Tennessee Shines program. Tonight, He’ll have the stage entirely to himself (minus opening sets from Johnny Quaid and Roman Candle), and I can’t wait.
As an added bonus, Alejandro has been working out some new songs on this tour and is preparing to return to the studio with producer Tony Visconti to record the followup to 2008’s Real Animal. I imagine he’ll play some of those songs tonight. I’ll try to check back in with a post-show report later this week. Until then… here’s a classic Alejandro track.
