Dave Alvin and Calexico on e-town


E-Town is taping at the Boulder Theater this next Monday, October 2.  Dave Alvin and Calexico are guests at this show presented by Boulder’s radio station 97.3 KBCO.  Show starts at 7:00 p.m., but get there early, so you can sit up close, and plus, I’ll be there early and you can keep me company. 

Here’s what e-town says about it on their web site:

Great Western sounds will fill the Boulder Theater as etown welcomes Calexico for their first visit and celebrates the return of Dave Alvin. Calexico, the Tucson Arizona based eclectic rockers led by Joey Burns and John Convertino are known for drawing wide influences like Morricone spaghetti Western, surf, twang and 50’s jazz into a sound that evokes cinematic grandeur.

Dave Alvin swings back to etown in support of his acclaimed new release “West of the West, Songs from California Songwriters.” On this collection, Alvin, a consummate writer himself, sings a love letter to his native California. He takes songs by writers as different as Merle Haggard, Jackson Browne and Tom Waits and makes them all sound like one person wrote them. More intriguingly, they all sound like the writer might have been him.
