Alejandro Escovedo & The Sensitive Boys

When: Sat., Aug. 14, 9 p.m. 2010

Ever since recovering from a life-threatening bout with Hepatitis C, Alejandro Escovedo has been making some of the best music of his life. For his new album, Street Songs of Love, Escovedo reunites with legendary glam-rock producer Tony Visconti for a gritty bakers dozen-worth of songs about the joy, heartbreak, and sensuality that comes with being in love. With his Sensitive Boys serving as musical wingmen, the Bay Area punk pioneer ñ and founding member of now-legendary group, The Nuns ñ gets raucous, laying his emotions bare on the opening cut "Anchor" and pleading for a chance amid the choppy guitars of "Silver Cloud." And while album guests Ian Hunter and Bruce Springsteen won't be making this homecoming trip back to the Bay Area with Escovedo, you can be sure the singer will be tapping into his inner Marc Bolan on Saturday, August 14 at Bimbo's 365 Club (1025 Columbus Ave., San Francisco), 9 p.m. $25.
