The boys in Lucero have a new fan. The always-stuffed-with-MP3-goodies blog, An Aquarium Drunkard, gives props to the Memphis-based band in a new post. (Scroll down a bit -- you'll find it.)
Lucero, fronted by Little Rock native Ben Nichols, is a big-time local favorite in Batesville, selling out every time they play. They are slowly building a national following, and praise from prominent bloggers such as AAD can only help.
Speaking of Lucero, Nichols and bandmate Brian Venable will play an acoustic set on March 25 at Vino's Brewpub in Little Rock. It's part of Rock 4 the Kids 2006 -- a benefit concert sponsored by the Lyon College Kappa Sigma and Phi Mu chapters. All proceeds will go toward the Arkansas Children's Hospital. Batesville's Kingsdown, the great Cory Branan, Slow Runner and others will also be part of the show. For more info, e-mail Blake Phillips at firstname.lastname@example.org.
