MUSIC: Lucero Brings The Rock and Roll To The Met

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

 

Straight outta Memphis--rock and rollers Lucero took over the stage at The Met in Pawtucket.

This past Saturday at The Met in Pawtucket, genuine rock & roll was on tap with Lucero from Memphis, TN headlining a show that was the hottest ticket in The Ocean State. The most badass man in Providence in Joe Fletcher and The Wrong Reasons opened up the night and it was bound to be a musical tornado that swept everyone off their feet. Gotta case of the rock & roll blues? What was going on at The Met on this evening was the absolute cure.

Joe Fletcher & The Wrong Reasons

Hot off of ripping up SXSW into itty bitty pieces, Joe Fletcher & The Wrong Reasons came back to the state where they call home and it felt just right, like Goldilocks and porridge. "A Better Place", "I Never", "Flat Tire", "Ambulances" featuring local legend Bryan Minto on harmonica, "Every Heartbroken Man", "Oceanside Motel", "Sentimental Jury", "Drunk & Single (For George Jones)" and "Who Makes The Knives" with Minto joining the fray again on harmonica provided the jolt that everyone needed to begin the show, Joe Fletcher & The Wrong Reasons embody everything that is great about the Rhode Island music scene and they showed why tonight. Joe and the boys are bound to be touring and on the festival circuit this summer, if they hit your neighborhood and go see a band that is doing big things in 2013.

Lucero

The place was packed to the gills and there was only one band everyone was waiting to see, Lucero came up on stage and the crowd roared in a frenzy. A flurry of rock & roll with "Women & Work", a version of Jawbreaker's "Kissed The Bottle", "Raising Hell", "On My Way Downtown", "Nights Like These", "Slow Dancing", "Like Lightning", "Hey Darlin', Do You Gamble?", "Texas and Tennessee", "Ain't So Lonely", "Who You Waiting On?", "Breathless Love", "Bike Riders", "That Much Further West", "Mom", "Hold Me Close", "Shelter", "The War", "All Sewn Up", "Nobody's Darlings", "Sweet Little Thing" and "Tears Don't Matter Much" had the crowd singing every word and chanting for more. Ben Nichols and Rick Steff then came back out for an intimate encore of "Fistful Of Tears" to cap off a fantastic night. Over 2 hours of amazing rock & roll courtesy of Memphis' finest, Lucero will be putting out a new EP in a few weeks and everyone who loves anything associated with a six-string should definitely give it a listen when it's released. When it's a sold out show at The Met there is nothing like it, check out themetri.com to see when the next big act is hitting the stage.
