Two pieces in print today. There’s Bombpop, which is about Josh Rouse’s terrific new record 1972. And there’s a Journal News feature on three upcoming NYC benefits for Alejandro Escovedo, who’s been floored by hepatitis C, as mentioned here previously. I can’t find the complete listings for all three shows on the Journal News site, so I’m gonna go ahead and post them here.
