If you love Americana or songs with a country-music bent, tonight is made for you. At the Belly Up, a rock band you might hear on the Outlaw Country stations, Lucero, returns to San Diego (read the SoundDiego interview with the band here). If you're a fan, however, you already knew that, because I've never seen more diehard fans for any band than Lucero. At the Observatory, you can get a full dose of country with Sturgill Simpson, who's been called "Waylon on acid" and "the savior of country music." Of course, there are other awesome shows tonight, including Rise Against at SOMA, Allison Weiss at the Casbah, and RAC and Big Data are in town at the Music Box, a show that was moved from the Observatory (read the SoundDiego interview with that band here). Show time on that show has been moved to 8 p.m. so you don't have to worry about such a late night after all.
