John Prine, Alejandro Escovedo

If the oft-employed term "influential" still has meaning in today's musical universe, then a massive amount of its worth lives within the work of John Prine. A legend without being a household name, Prine's songwriting is a force that's turned many aimless youth into wonderful artists in their own right. Catching him live is like hearing a short story collection from the author's own mouth. Pair that with Austin treasure Alejandro Escovedo, and you've got two skilled storytellers on the Majestic's beautiful stage.
