Memphis country punks Lucero have been on tour with Titus Andronicus that came to NYC for a big show at Terminal 5, which The Menzingers opened, making for a great triple bill of heartland punk. Not long before the show, Lucero had told us in an interview that they were nervous to return to the venue, because when they were last there, opening for The Black Keys, it was one of their worst shows ever with the crowd heckling them, equipment malfunctions, and more disaster. Things seemed to go over better for them this time around though. In Lorraine Schwartz’s review for Examiner, she wrote positively of the show, only saying it was subdued in comparison to the drunken Brooklyn Bowl shows Lucero played pre-New Year’s Eve this past December.

Lucero played a lengthy set, hitting tracks from all over their career, as far back as their self-titled 2001 debut, and as recent as this year’s Texas & Tennessee EP. Co-headliners Titus Andronicus played many of the usual live favorites, a bit of new stuff, and ended with a tribute to Lou Reed by covering The Velvet Underground’s Sister Ray. And though Lucero were fine this time, maybe it was openers The Menzingers plagued by the venue’s size? Pictures of all three bands and Titus’ setlist are in this post.

Lucero and Titus’ tour treks on, and then in 2014 Lucero will go on a St. Patrick’s day tour with Dropkick Murphys. That tour hits the NYC-area for shows in Long Island and NJ (tickets).

Lucero (and Titus and The Menzingers) were also recently down in Gainesville for The Fest, and speaking of country-punk bands that played The Fest, Pretty Boy Thorson (of country-punk band The Falling Angels) was down there with his band The Slow Death who play NYC tonight (11/12) at Coco66. Like I wrote in today’s What’s Going On Tuesday post, The Slow Death (not to be confused with Slow Warm Death) drop the “country” but keep the “songwriter punk” element, resulting in raw, anthemic jams.

As discussed, The Menzingers also have upcoming headlining shows in NYC with Modern Baseball, Banquets, and Ma Jolie (sold out); and West Chester, PA with Modern Baseball, Cayetana, and Cassavetes (tickets).
