Alejandro Ticket

Yesterday Alejandro Escovedo brought a great show to Woodstock. We aren't known for getting bands like this. It was the work of Bill and Dawn at Odd Fellows pub to get Alejandro here, and that means good things for this city. And I was very lucky to turn on my Flip Mino to get this video of "Everybody Loves Me," easily my favorite song from the concert...

If you like Alejandro, check out some of his albums: More Miles Than Money ($5.99), Bourbonitis Blues ($5.99), A Man Under The Influence ($6.99), and his most recent album, Real Animal ($9.49).

One of my favorite new albums is Titus Andronicus: The Monitor. Here's a video for the opening song, "A More Perfect Union." The album version is twice as long as the video, and twice as awesome as it rocks out in anthemic, uh, awesomeness. But this is a nice introduction to a fun rock band...
