BIG BEN: Ben Nichols dials down Lucero’s bluster Aug. 27.
Sunday August 27, 2023 08:00 PM EDT
Cost: $22-$25
CRITIC’S PICK: It has been over a decade since Nichols released a solo album, but he has been busy with his full-time job; navigating the Memphis-based roots rockers Lucero - which he fronts - from clubs to arenas. This solo stint allows him to unplug and dial down that band’s more aggressive Americana attack. The opening acoustic duo features singer Lulu VanTuckett traversing the darker side of country with a voice that’ll send shivers. - Hal Horowitz
