Alejandro Escovedo, Carolyn Wonderland and Terri Hendrix – Austin Night For Nature – Moody Theater, TX

Alejandro Escovedo

Three of Austin’s finest musical talents – Alejandro Escovedo and the Sensitive Boys, Carolyn Wonderland and Terri Hendrix – joined forces for a concert benefitting nearly twenty local environmental groups (TreeFolks, Urban Roots and the Colorado River Foundation to name a few).

With introductions and commentary from A. Whitney Brown (of SNL fame, he’s also Mr. Carolyn Wonderland) the evening kicked off with Terri Hendrix and her band featuring Lloyd Maines, Glenn Fukunaga and John Silva.

Hendrix’s singer-songwriter-with-a-kick sound ramped up perfectly to Carolyn Wonderland with Cole El-Saleh and Rob Hooper, who were in town for hardly a minute between summer festivals and a heavy touring schedule. Their segment featured songs from their upcoming record, Peace Meal, “Victory of Flying” and Janis Joplin’s “What Good Can Drinking Do?”

Alejandro Escovedo and the Sensitive Boys brought the night to a rocking finale, pumping out favorites such as “Silver Cloud” and “Chelsea Hotel ’78” to an enthusiastic crowd.
