SXSW 2006 :: Lucero @ Red 7

Now hear this: This Tennessee band shook the Red 7 club pretty damn good Friday night. Commanding one of the more enthusiastic audiences I saw over the course of the weekend, a confident Lucero worked their Memphis-styled muse throughout the entirety of their set. Vocals/guitarist Ben Nichols, while powerful on record, delivers a Live performance not unlike a young Steve Earle. High praise, indeed. Here are some of the photos shot during the set.
