Alejandro Slated for Democratic Convention Performance

New York, NY - August 25, 2008

Texas-rocker Alejandro Escovedo has been tapped to perform live from the Pepsi Center in Denver, CO on Tuesday evening as part of the DNCC's nighttime program, which will feature Senator Hillary Clinton as the evening's prime-time headline speaker.  Escovedo, who is slated to perform "People (We're Only Gonna Live So Long)" from his recent release REAL ANIMAL, will take the stage at 5:45 p.m. (MST).

This will mark Escovedo's first performance at the Democratic National Convention.  About the opportunity Escovedo had to say, "These are unbalanced times, and great change is needed.  To be included in this celebration of the dignity and freedom of women and minorities is an honor."
