Tomorrow night at the Longhorn Saloon in Fort Worth, Memphis alt-country favorites Lucero stop on in for a performance as part of its tour in support of the recently released album, 1372 Overton Park. To a degree, the new release is a change of pace from the bar-rock fare the band's release in the past. For one, it's the band's major label debut, this release coming by way of Universal
Motown Republic. And, maybe, in a way, that label's history's been an inspiration for the act, as 1372 Overton Park is certainly a more soul-driven affair, complete with horn sections and all.
Not sure how, if at all, that will affect the band's usual, drunken live performances, but I guess we'll find out tomorrow night.
And one lucky reader can find out how for free, actually--thanks to the folks at Spune Productions who've kindly passed along a pair of tickets to tomorrow night's show. They're yours if you're the first person to shoot me an email with the words "Rebels, Rogues and Sworn Brothers" in the subject line. Good luck!
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winner.
