Lucero and Langhorne Slim


Hawthorne Theatre (map) Southeast
Tue., April 9, 7 p.m. 2013 21+


As much as I did not care for Lucero's latest album, Women and Work (what happened to your voice, Ben Nichols!?), I still can't, in good conscience, suggest that anyone miss this show. I've seen the Tennessee-based band half a dozen times, perhaps more, and they are consistently fantastic, littering their sets with equal amounts of country-injected rock-'n'-roll numbers like "Sixteen" (with horns!) and somber, sure-to-put-a-tear-in-your-beer ballads like "Nights Like These" and "It Gets the Worst at Night." Chances are, most of the grievances I have about the new album—Nichols' voice is too polished, the songs get repetitive—won't apply to their live show anyway. MEGAN SELING
