I saw Alejandro Escovedo last night and he was excellent - highly recommended. I would have posted this in the "Last concert I saw thread" but I have been thinking that maybe a more useful thread would be one which alerts other forum members to upcoming events and thus gives them the chance to go and hear for themselves.
I kind of tried this recently by starting a Bill Kirchen tour thread which led several forum members to catch his shows. It seems to me there must be scope for more of this, especially with lesser known artists.
To start it off, Alejandro Escovedo is playing the UK for the rest of this week - he said he was on the Andrew Marr show yesterday if you want to check him out with his current band. Next week I'm going to see The Muffin Men with Denny Wally (played on Joe's Garage, Bongo Fury, and Bat Chain Puller) who play Zappa and some Beefheart music. I've seen them before (with the late Jimmy Carl Black) and they are truly excellent - not slavish copyists but true to the spirit of the music. They are touring through April.
I guess posting links to tour dates would break Forum rules but Googling the band's name will always bring up dates and venues.
Anyone else think it's a good idea to have such a thread? There was a "Next concert" thread but that seems to be closed and the last post was 2013.
