Escovedo on the shelf

Plans for Alejandro Escovedo to return to the stage as a guest of the Nicholas Tremulis Orchestra at that band's 6/3 Double Door gig are off, according to the event's publicist. Escovedo's "doctor has advised him to refrain from travel and performing over the next month and concentrate on his recovery from Hepatitis C," the publicist quotes Alejandro's management. The Austinite singer-songwriter's only performance in more than a year came at a private event at this year's SXSW festival in March.
