Tonight: Lucero & Robert Ellis Roar Through Stafford (No, Seriously)

I don’t get out much these days; it’s a sad, sad truth of my near-suburban Soccer-/Theater-/Cub Scout-Dad existence. When I see a show coming up, even one that sounds truly, truly awesome, my immediate, instinctual response is, “ah, fuck, I’m too damn tired, it’s gonna be too far away, too late a night; I should just stay home and watch TV or read.” So, in a lot of cases, that’s exactly what I do…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Buxton + Ben Nichols + Nava’s Tour Kickoff + Miss Leslie + Crystal Method + More

Hey, y’all — yours truly spent the whole damn day fighting something, got wiped out around lunchtime, and just barely made it back on his feet after. sigh. So yeah, this is somehow, unbelievably, even later than yesterday’s little rundown…

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 2: Warped Tour (MP3!) + Pride Fest/Prideapalooza + Other Lives + Oax (MP3!) + Gritsy + More

Yeah, I’m attempting to not let the rest of the weekend get the jump on me, this time; let’s see how it goes, eh? Cross yr fingers, y’all… The big item on the list, at least in the physical sense, is this year’s edition of the Vans Warped Tour

Yr. Weekend, Pt. 1: Lucero + Frank Turner + My Education + Co-Pilot + Hell City Kings + Robbie Fulks + Matt Costa + More

Damn. Tonight’s another busy-as-hell Friday (November 19th, to be precise), and there is a ton of stuff going on, a lot of it awesomely good. Here goes…

Summerfest Rundown, Pt. 3: Giant Princess + Tyagaraja + Lovie + Something Fierce + Slim Thug + Lucero + More

Next pile of bands, right here… I’m a wee bit nervous, I have to say, about the weather — if it’s pouring Saturday & Sunday, the Summerfest is going to be, um, interesting. I saw what Eleanor Tinsley Park looked like last year…

Free Press News, About to Break…

Y’know, I’m already pretty blown away by the lineup for this year’s Free Press Summerfest (coming up in just over a month, June 5-6) — I mean, they’ve already got The Flaming Lips, Lucero, Mix Master Mike, Cro-Mags, Detroit Cobras, Dead Prez, Stars…the list goes on & on — so I’m having a bit of […]

Live: Lucero/Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears

We didn’t make it to the show in time to see much of Black Joe Lewis. First, it was hard for us to get out the door that night. While waiting for the babysitter, our daughter began to get sick (ah, the joys of parenting). After putting her to sleep, we were finally able to get on the road, only to be stuck outside the door waiting in the Will Call line…

Lucero, Nobody’s Darlings

Memphis’ Lucero blends a solid dedication to Southern rock (sans racism) with early country and punk-tinged garage rock (thanks in no small part to producer Jim Dickinson, best known for his work with The Replacements, Big Star, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Bob Dylan…)
