JEFFERSON PARK — Rock legend Alejandro Escovedo will perform and discuss his career as part of the Words and Music series taking place at the Ed Paschke Art Center, organizers said.

Escovedo, who began his career in the punk group the Nuns and has performed with everyone from Ryan Adams to Bruce Springsteen, will perform at 3 p.m. Jan. 31 at the Ed Paschke Art Center, 5415 W. Higgins Ave.

After Escovedo's performance, the musician known as the "godfather of modern country" will sit down with Chicago musician Nicholas Tremulis to discuss his more than four decade-long career, organizers said.

Tremulis and Escovedo are long-time friends, organizers said.

The Words and Music series at the Ed Paschke Art Center is designed to give Tremulis an opportunity to craft "a live musical biography" by asking performers about "living, loving and surviving a life in music," organizers said.

The Ed Paschke Art Center in Jefferson Park is dedicated to showcasing the colorful and up-close paintings of people's faces that made Paschke one of the most famous artists to call Chicago home.

Admission to the museum and the concert is free, but reservations are required.
