Lucero needs no introduction in these parts so, weâ€™ll keep it short and sweet: The boys from Memphis roll through town next Monday. Still touring 1372 Overton Park, their first release on a major label, and arguably their strongest release to date. Promises to be one of the more kick ass shows to come through Columbia in a while. (Interested to see if we hear anything from Ben Nicholsâ€™ latest solo release The Last Pale Light in the West, inspired by Cormac McCarthyâ€™s brutal epic novel Blood Meridian.) Catch them in an intimate venue while you still can.
Glossary, from Murfreesboro, TN, opens the show. They are somehow mellow and power packed at once.
Expect lots of beards, beat up Telecasters and songs about whiskey. In fact, just go ahead and take off work the next day.
