first off, sometimes i have trouble keeping ahead of the concert news out there, so let us know what you want to see in the area (local or beyond).

in the “beyond” category: alejandro escovedo will bring his austin alterna-country, w/ a hint of post-glam to the birchmere theater (alexandria) on november 9.  i first heard of alejandro after he and his band slept on a friend of ours’ floor in eugene back in the ’90s.  he’s got the gut-check biography of a country singer, but his new record hinges on his time in the new york punk scene. he was great (& his band was unbelievable, w/ strings that actually fit country-rock and perfect club sound) at the tractor in seattle in ’05 i think this will be worth the drive.

closer to home, one of our all-time-favorite guys to watch at the little grill, mountain flatpicker larry keel will be at clementine friday, oct 24.

and the brooms, w/ former members of dirt pond and an ominous, eye-plucking flyer, will be at clementine on saturday, oct 25.

so, ¿what else looks good?
