Alejandro Escovedo & The Sensitive Boys
St. Bonaventure's Parish Social Club
11th July, 2012
Well what an odd and very popular venue this is. The room itself seems setup in totally the wrong way, but this means nobody is further than about 15 yards from the stage,
albeit some at a very strange angle.
Alejandro and his new Sensitive Boys hit the stage unannounced, not many minutes after Amy Speace had finished her slot.
This shows in the fact that I missed the start of "Sally Was A Cop" due to taking a comfort break (and a smoke). Judging by the way some of the crowd reacted to the ferocity of this show,
I believe some of the audience were recently converted to Alejandros' music on his most recent acoustic tour with David Pulkingham.
They were sadly mistaken if they thought this was a repeat performance as they came out all guns blazing. The new members of Sensitive Boys have settled in well and Billy White excels on the rockier songs.
I love this side of Alejandro, but then again there isn't a side of him that I don't.
Download, share freely, and enjoy.
