Mexican American singer-songwriter Alejandro Escovedo comes from a musical family that includes famed percussionist Pete Escovedo and Pete’s daughter, Prince protege Sheila E. Kicking off his musical career in punk bands, Alejandro moved to Austin, Texas in the 80’s and found his groove in roots rock and alt-country, recording a number of albums and collaborating with Ryan Adams and Whiskeytown along the way. His most recent recorded work reflects a creative partnership with famed producer Tony Visconti. He’s supported on this date at the HopMonk by San Francisco singer/songwriter Lisa Azzolini.
San Francisco singer songwriter Sara Laine brings an impressive band of musical friends with her to the HopMonk for a CD release show, including multi-instrumentalist Robert Powell, who lists work with Jackson Browne and Peter Gabriel on his resume, Tom Finch (Big Brother & the Holding Company) and Susi Davis, who has toured with the likes of Mick Jagger, Pat Benatar and Prince. Expect a night that blends rock, country and R&B to impressive effect.
