Friday To-Do: Lucero

LUCERO
9 p.m., Revolution. $15.

It's an embarrassment of riches for Lucero fans. We're not even through February and Friday's show marks the third time the Memphis band has played Little Rock. Sure, they've been averaging around 200 shows a year. But, on the other hand, this is a band that recently did two nights at the near 3,000-capacity Terminal 5 in New York (with an assist from the Black Keys). This looks to be a full year for the band. Already, front man (and Little Rock native) Ben Nichols has released a solo album, “The Last Pale Light of the West.” In March, he and the band will appear on Craig Brewer's new web series on MTV.com, “$5 Cover.” Last year, the band signed a four-album deal with Universal/Republic. They've been holed up in Young Avenue Sound cutting demos, so cross your fingers, maybe they'll debut some live numbers.

UPDATE: Just got word that there's only 150 tickets left, so show up early or pick em up now if you're set on going.
