From the Center for the Arts in Jackson:
Center Theater in Jackson presents Alejandro Escovedo in concert on Saturday, Feb. 14, 7 p.m.
Tickets: $55 orchestra & first 2 rows balcony; $45 3rd row balcony & beyond ($2 box office processing fee applies to all tickets)
All ticket holders will receive a complimentary champagne toast, sweets provided by Persephone Bakery, and a long stem rose for all the ladies.
Escovedo’s solo recording career began in 1992 with Gravity, hailed in its very first review by the Austin Chronicle as “a near perfect album of stunning originality… some of the greatest music to be found anywhere and anytime.” Such consistent unstinting praise has marked every release that followed through to Street Songs of Love, described as “ageless rock’n’roll” by the Washington Post and “required listening” by the New York Post. It’s no wonder that veteran Rolling Stone critic David Fricke pondered some years ago: “What does it take to make this man a star?”
