Alejandro Escovedo (rock band edition) just passed through Boston for a post-Thanksgiving extravaganza. In the midst of an otherwise rocking set that leaned heavily on the just-released Burn Something Beautiful, Escovedo took a solemn moment to reflect on the many musicians that we’ve lost this year. He celebrated their memory with a moving version of “Sister Lost Soul,” from his 2008 album Real Animal. Although it was originally written (with Chuck Prophet) as a tribute to the late Jeffrey Lee Pierce of The Gun Club), it is sadly appropriate today.
