Alejandro Escovedo, A 'Real Animal' In Concert

A music legend based in Austin, Tex., Escovedo has been hailed as a poet, as a storyteller, and as one of the most important musicians of the last quarter-century. He blends rock, folk, blues, and classically influenced music into a boundary-defying style that has won him a devoted following all over the world. Click the link above to hear Escovedo perform songs from his new album, Real Animal, live in concert from WXPN and Wiggins Park in Philadelphia on July 11, 2008.

The latest installment in WXPN's annual XPoNential Music Festival offered a broad cross-section of modern music, from beloved veterans (Alejandro Escovedo, Dar Williams) to up-and-comers (The Redwalls, The War on Drugs), with a headlining performance by critically acclaimed English singer-songwriter Beth Orton.
