Lucero, PBR, Late Night Pick: Jack White

Alt-country rockers Lucero hit the Epic Theatre (the venue formerly known as Hat Factory) tonight. Tix are $18, doors open at 8 and show time is 9 with opener J. Roddy Walston and the Business.  If you like Drive-By Truckers, Rolling Stones, The Silos, The Blasters, The Replacements or The Hold Steady, these guys will be right up your alley. The more I hear of these guys, the more I'm liking them. Here's their video for "Sixteen":


Also tonight, local faves People's Blues of Richmond will be at Republic. The show is FREE if you are over 21 and $5 if you are under 21. Show will start around 9 and Golden Butter Band will open.

Jack White will be playing a track or two from his new critically acclaimed album, Blunderbuss, tonight on the Colbert Report on Comedy Central at 11:30 PM and then on repeats at various times throughout the next 24 hours. Jack will be scoring the new "Lone Ranger" movie which stars Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger. He'll also have a concert webcast on YouTube tomorrow night, directed by Gary Oldman. The dude is everywhere.
