BBQ with Lucero

A few months ago I saw Lucero for the first time at the Magic Stick. The show was epic, the crowd loved them and Katie Fran even jumped on stage and tried to kiss singer Ben Nicolas (If you don't know Katie Fran look her up- I'm a Franatic!). I could not believe how wild the crowd went, the sing alongs and all the people jumping around and having the time of their lives. It made me a Lucero fan for life and guaranteed when they came back into town that I would not only attend, but I would try to get our readers out for what I know will be a good time. I just didn't know they would be back so soon and be doing something so neat which makes it a lot easier to tell you why you need to be there.

Lucero is playing this Sunday at Small's in Hamtramack and they are having a good old fashioned BBQ for all those that attend the show. Smalls is my favorite bar in Michigan and is the best place to see a band like this because they have a great team of sound guys over there that know what they are doing. The drinks are always stiff, the TV in the bar broadcasts what is happening on stage so you don't have to miss a beat and they always have lots of my favorite Hard Luck Rootbeer Vodka ready to pour on the rocks.  
Mike and crew will be serving up all sorts of food including pulled pork, burgers, sausage, veggie burgers, coleslaw and chips. Tickets are only $20 for this event and can be purchased here. The show starts at 8 and all ages are welcome to join in on the fun. Jonny Corndawg is opening the show and the night promises to be one of punk, rock and roll and good old fashioned country mixed into one.

If you can't make it to this show or you live in the Grand Rapids area, you can also check them out two days earlier on August 17 at the The Intersection, my favorite venue on that side of the state. Click here for details and to purchase tickets to that show.

See you at the BBQ!
