Alejandro Escovedo TICKET GIVEAWAY! Lincoln Hall 10/12 – Chicago, IL

Posted in Contests with tags , , on October 5, 2010 by bangbangslang

Alejandro Escovedo & The Sensitive Boys stop by Lincoln Hall next Tuesday!

He’s come a long way since his time in the ’70’s  with punk rock pioneers The Nuns. A long way. Alejandro Escovedo is the quintessential “somehow still flying under the radar” prodigal musician – a talent that has tasted a wide spectrum of genres, mastered them, collaborated with many of the greats, and established a healthy discography as a solo artist over the last two decades. Plus, he was a central collaborator with BBS’ favorite singer/songwriter, Ryan Adams, during Whiskeytown‘s “Stranger’s Almanac” sessions. (I would cut off my pinky to see some of those Bloodshot Records shows from the late 90’s…ugh) A man who No Depression hailed as their “Artist of the Decade” is coming to our beloved Lincoln Hall next Tuesday 10/12.

and Bang Bang Slang has a pair of tickets to give away to the show!

Another artist that helps lessen BBS‘ longing for the South and bring back our fondness for Alt-Country to the Midwest, Escovedo‘s Chicago tour date is his first in a while and should be whiskey soaked glory.

Congratulations to Jonathan and Ashley for taking away last week’s pair of tickets to Teenage Fanclub‘s 2 night stand at Lincoln Hall beginning tonight! Have fun!!!
