LUCERO FAMILY PICNIC
3 p.m. First Security Amphitheatre. $27-$47.

Here's a safe bet: People will be coming into Little Rock from all over the country for the annual Lucero Family Picnic.

The picnic got its start back in 2007 up in Batesville; this year's event will truly be a family affair, as Lucero founder Ben Nichols' younger brother Jeff Nichols will be on hand for a Q&A about the movie he directed and filmed in Arkansas, a film called "Mud" that you've probably heard about.

Also, Guy Venable, father of Lucero guit-slinger Brian Venable, will perform. Rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson is going to play as well. And, of course, Lucero will headline this shindig, performing its fan-fave album "Tennessee" in its entirety, along with what's sure to be a rollicking set of numbers from the band's deep catalog.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
