LUCERO
8:30 p.m. Revolution. $26.

Little Rock native Ben Nichols leads Lucero back to the natural state for this show to benefit CARTI. The band recently finished recording its forthcoming album "Women and Work" at Ardent Studios in Memphis.

The new record will be available March 13, with Lucero set to embark on a nationwide tour in support of the release starting in late February. No official Little Rock dates have been announced (although the band will play back-to-back nights in Fayetteville Feb. 24 and 25), so unless you plan on venturing to venues afar, be sure to get yourself to the Rev Room Wednesday night for some goodtime tunes.

Expect to hear cuts from the new record, which, from what we've heard, is a more-than-formidable follow-up to 2009's "1372 Overton Park," which found the Memphis rockers in full-on Memphis soul mode. The new tunes are straight up rock 'n' roll (remember The Faces?) and will please the diehards while welcoming those new to the band. Memphis songstress Amy Lavere opens.
