Will Alejandro Escovedo be getting a statue in Austin next? He's certainly achieved sainthood in the state of Texas, especially after sitting at the right hand of The Boss during SXSW this year. He makes his way to the Kessler this week to flex that roots-rock muscle.
We're giving away two pairs of tickets for the Thursday show, with opener Doug Burr. (Sorry, ladies. We're not actually giving Burr away, he's just opening.) Email us here and tell us your favorite Al song. We'll announce a winner tomorrow!
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
