Live Photography :: Lucero in Boston!

A New Live Photo Collection :: Lucero at the Paradise
Boston, MA :: April 16th, 2009

It would be the understatement of the year to say that Ben Nichols and LUCERO make a huge impression everywhere they go. The frontman sings his guts out on every track, stopping periodically to swill and share some Irish booze with his friends in the band. He salutes the crowd, thanking them for their good will. Later, he curses at them and, later still, he laughs when the need arises. He shares jokes and then he returns to the music... Lots of stories and lots of smiles. This was the pace of things last week at the Paradise. The band was just sensational, and together with Nichols, they sewed up each song into a tapestry of incredible musical performance and sloppy-fun memory.

So point well taken people: the Nichols-led Lucero is one of the Nation's finest live shows going. Trekking across the country right now they are marching toward their seventh album - and a new kind of immortality... one song at a time!

It is with great pleasure that we bring you the Lucero show in Boston.
