Los Lobos w/Los Lonely Boys & Alejandro Escovedo

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Billboards, bus benches and fliers are the tried-and-true methods of promoting shows around town. But it’s not every lineup that merits a hand-painted mural. If you’ve driven through East Nashville’s Five Points intersection lately, then you’ve probably seen the names “Los Lobos,” “Los Lonely Boys” and “Alejandro Escovedo” emblazoned on the side of the Performing Artist Co-op building. There’s even a three-minute YouTube video documenting the painting process. It’s worth all that extra effort when three standard-bearers of left-of-center Latin rock are touring together. They’ve each got their own sounds; rootsy Austin post-punk is Escovedo’s deal; Los Lobos specialize in wickedly clever California grooves; and Los Lonely Boys, the youngest in the bunch, go in for classic blues-rock. But their musical common ground also gives them the freedom to dig into onstage collaboration, which will make for a helluva heady show.
