Alejandro Escovedo & Joe Ely

Compadres for decades in the Austin, Texas, scene but only rarely collaborators, Joe Ely and Alejandro Escovedo each pioneered the alt-country brand in different ways via their respective ’70s-’80s bands the Flatlanders and Rank and File and subsequent solo work. They have followed vastly different musical paths since then — ranging from glam-punk to synth-rock— but meet back up at the Woody Guthrie folk and Tex-Mex folkloric crossroads. They’re on a “storytellers” tour together, which should include some tall Texas tales and at least two good ones on Townes Van Zandt. Chris Riemenschneider
