Lucero

"Lucero on the heels of four Hold Steady shows in a damn row? I may very well be far too old for these things. The weather is nice(r) and it only makes a man think that it's a good idea to ride the bike to Hoboken and post up at Maxwells. The boys are still touring behind Rebels, Rogues and Sworn Brothers, but they have a new record in the can and haven't been shy about playing the new material live. It sounds great.... No real surprises, save for Ben playing a bunch of the stuff from The Last Pale Light In The West as sort of a first encore, but pretty bad ass all around." [Jaded Scenester NYC]

It was three NYC-area shows in two days for Lucero over this weekend, and none of them had anything to do with the Northside Festival. It all started Friday night at Maxwell's (review and picture above), followed by the outdoor Big Apple BBQ on Saturday which was followed that night by a private party at Pianos with Hull. More dates and pictures from Maxwell's, below...
