Alejandro Escovado

Alejandro Escovado

Alejandro Escovedo has been knocking out one great album after another since his solo debut in 1992 – and he made some mighty fine albums before that with such bands as Rank & File and the True Believers.

Sadly, he still hasn’t been able to break out of cult status and into mainstream success. The small crowd of discerning folks at the Calvin Theatre last week didn’t care. They already knew that talent is no guarantee of success in the music biz. And they already knew about Escovedo’s towering musical talent.

Escovedo and his lean, mean power-trio of a band, the Sensitive Boys, stepped out on stage swinging for the fences with an amped-up, bristling “Always a Friend.” They concentrated on the new album, “Street Songs of Love,” early on, cranking it up for serious, no-frills rockin’ on “This Bed’s Getting Crowded” and the roaring garage-rock nugget “Tender Heart.” Throughout the night, guitarist David Pulkingham was nothing short of amazing.
