Tickets are on sale for alt-country rock performer Alejandro Escovedo and The Burn Something Beautiful Band, who will perform June 27 at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall.
Escovedo released “Burn Something Beautiful,” in October 2016. Recorded at Portland’s Type Foundry studio, the project features guitarist Kurt Bloch (The Fastbacks), drummer John Moen (The Decemberists), vocalists Corin Tucker (Sleater-Kinney) and Kelly Hogan (Neko Case, The Flat Fie) as well as saxophonist Steve Berlin (Los Lobos).
In an impressive career that began with The Nuns, San Francisco’s famed punk innovators, to the Austin-based-based alt-country rock pioneers, Rank & File, to the Texas-bred True Believers, Escovedo has earned numerous distinctions, including No Depression magazine’s Artist of the Decade Award in 1998 and the Americana Music Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award for Performing in 2006.
“You just do your good work, and people care,” Escovedo said. “I always believed, when I was a kid, that if you worked hard, you would find fulfillment. I think I got a lot of that from my father and my brothers. A working musician is all I ever wanted to be. Hard work, stay true to what you want to do, and then eventually someone would notice for that very reason.”
Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show beginning at at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $24.50 to $38.50 and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at ticketmaster.com and by phone at (800) 745-3000.
