"Lucero just tearing up Brooklyn Bowl, they may be the best band in America right now... yes they are that good" - DJ Rich Russo (The Peak)

Lucero at Brooklyn Bowl (via John Brown)

Lucero kicked off their four-night New Year's Even run with Brooklyn Bowl shows on Friday (12/28) and Saturday (12/29) before hitting Boston with The Hold Steady on Sunday (12/30). Videos from both nights are below.

Then on New Year's Eve, Lucero joined The Hold Steady to ring in the new year at Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. After The Hold Steady played "Barfruit Blues" it turned midnight and they welcomed in the new year, continuing with the bulk of their set in 2013. The Hold Steady's set was interrupted due to a crowd member who needed to be rushed to a hospital, but they picked things back up soon after. Their setlist and a video from that night are below. Comedian Kurt Braunohler opened the night.

All videos and setlist are below...

Lucero were great NYE. They've grown as a live band since I last saw them a few years ago.

Was that guy just really drunk and pass out? I couldn't see any of it from where I was.

No. I was standing right behind him. Some dude didn't like the way he was dancing and decided to elbow him in the back of the neck. It knocked him out cold and he hit his head pretty hard on the concrete. He wasn't moving and was still unconscious after THS played First Night. It freaked a lot of people out. There was a pool of blood under his head. The dude who elbowed him took off right after. Not cool.... Great show otherwise.

I was in the balcony overlooking the floor. We couldn't tell what had caused him to pass out. But it definitely seemed like more than a drunken pass out. Craig yelled out for security but we don't know if that was because he saw a circle forming or he see the above (I assume the former). However, because the guy got up after awhile and just seemed dazed, we all chalked it up to drunkenness. He was cheered and the show resumed.

How come nobody dropped the 5 teenagers moshing out of control all night? Because one of them was a girl? Because their mother brought them? (Only at this kind of show can moshing brats take photos with mom before they mosh).

Oh the bands were excellent by the way. A great concert.

Thanks for posting. We were like 2 feet to your left this whole (phenomenal) show... barely made the frame in the lower left once or twice.
