The very first person we thought to talk Austin with for our Sense of Place series was long time resident Alejandro Escovedo. Make no mistake Al was born and raised in San Antonio but has called Austin home for years. Today he reminisces about coming to Austin as a kid and tells how it was a tour stop with Rank and File, his band with his brother Javier, that convinced him to move back to Austin. Alejandro is a connector and a bridge between eras of Austin music and recently hosted a live show telling the city’s music history. Alejandro Escovedo sets the scene for our Sense of Place week in Austin.
