Sounds Like San Diego: February 20

Rosemary Bystrak

If you work a "real" job, hopefully you have tomorrow off. And if you're like me and your employment is almost entirely online (or in your head, whatever the case may be), today is as good as any to catch a show. I'll be checking out Lucero, and hopefully I can actually take some photos so I don't have to rely on my old collection, like this one from about three years ago. Either way, it has been a pleasure to see this tireless band time and time again, working through tours with barely an audience to a show like tonight, that sold out almost as soon as it was announced. It's rare that a band is even allowed to veer from their regularly scheduled programming, in this case touring with Social Distortion (which also sold out rather swiftly), but Lucero pulled strings because they're a band with a loyal following and in return, continue to be loyal to the fans that are slowly but surely putting them in the annals of music history as one of the greats, even if it's been a long road to get where they are now. The show's sold out, deservedly so. Those of us there will be sure to tell you how amazing it will surely be.
