ALEJANDRO ESCOVEDO Y DON ANTONIO AT CONTINENTAL CLUB
10 p.m. Sept. 24. $10. 1315 S. Congress Ave. continentalclub. com.
The only thing certain about former Austinite Escovedo’s music is that he’ll always be reaching for new territory somewhere on the horizon. With “The Crossing,” released last week on Yep Roc Records, he teamed with the renowned Italian band for a concept album about two immigrants on the Texas border, drawing from his own family experience (his father immigrated from Mexico as a young child). Escovedo has played the Continental countless times in his four-decade career, but this one promises to be something new and different.
Former Austinite Alejandro Escovedo plays the Continental Club on Monday in celebration of a new album.
