SINGER-SONGWRITER | Alejandro Escovedo 

Unless you're really into the indie scene or are a fan of "Veronica Mars," musician Alejandro Escovedo has probably dodged your ears to this point. He's been around for more than 20 years, putting out songs that range from rock to Americana (listen to "Castanets" and "Gravity, Falling Down Again" to hear said range). When you listen to his music, you'll wonder how he has remained so under the radar over the years. Escovedo's music is equal parts Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen. If you're still not convinced he's an act worth checking out, maybe this neat little fact will help: back in 2005, when George Bush was still in office, "Castanets" appeared on the president's iPod playlist. Escovedo reportedly refused to perform the song anymore until Bush removed it, or was out of office.

Alejandro Escovedo will be joined by his band The Sensitive Boys and opener Amy Cook Tuesday, April 8, at Zeppa Auditorium, 315 Gregory St. 7:30 p.m. $25-$30. zeppabistro.com.
