Alejandro Escovedo On World Cafe

The Crossing, Escovedo's latest album with Don Antonio, showcases the roots prowess the musician's known for, but also pushes in directions that you might not expect.
Here's a story for you about two teenage boys named Salvo and Diego. One is Mexican, one is Italian, and both are immigrants living in America. They're into punk rock like MC5 and The Stooges.
