After nine straight weeks on the road, mostly opening for Social Distortion, Lucero returns to its home-away-from-home for what's bound to be yet another sold-out show. Here are more things to expect: Gravelier-than-usual vocals from front man Ben Nichols. More instruments than you're probably used to seeing if you haven't seen a Lucero show lately. Recent-ish addition Todd Beane is playing the pedal steel, Rick Steff will mix in some occasional accordion and, unless they've got the holidays off, a horn section will infuse a little bit of Stax-style soul into Lucero's barroom rock. And, finally, dozens upon dozens who know every word to every song — even old Red 40 songs — and aren't ashamed to sing along. A portion of the proceeds benefits CARTI. The concert's open to those 18 and older.
