CONTEST – Lucero and Titus Andronicus @ The Horseshoe – April 12, 2009
Wes FrazerMemphis, Tennessee’s Lucero have earned themselves quite the reputation as the live act, leaving a trail of sweat and beer stains in their whiskey-soaked wake, and though they haven’t released a new record since 2006’s Rebels, Rogues & Sworn Brothers – aside from frontman Ben Nichols’ solo mini-album The Last Pale Light in the West earlier this year – they’re back on the road again doing what they do best.
And they’re bringing along sons of New Jersey Titus Andronicus, named for one of Shakespeare’s more gruesome plays (the Julie Taymor adaptation left me more than a little slack-jawed, but I digress), who released their debut The Airing Of Grievances last year and had it re-released this past January.
This double-bill of undistilled rock will hit the Horseshoe next Sunday night, April 12, and courtesy of Against The Grain, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away to the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to spend Easter with Lucero” in the subject line and your full name in the body. Contest will close at midnight tomorrow night, April 8, so if you want a piece of this get on it.
