Modern alt-country band Lucero at Otto’s in DeKalb July 30
Online Staff Report
DEKALB, Ill. — Modern alt-country band Lucero will appear at DeKalb’s Otto’s Niteclub & Underground, 118 E. Lincoln Hwy., Monday, July 30. The show, which features the Murfreesboro, Tenn.-based Glossary as the opening act, begins at 8 p.m.
Lucero’s current album, Women & Work, has received high critical praise. The New York Times called the band “one of the most dependable names in modern alt-country,” while Billboard deemed it “Lucero’s tightest, most focused album yet.”
Rolling Stone cited the disc’s range from “aching Memphis soul to rowdy, old-fashioned barroom boogie rock,” and The New Yorker raved, “Polished, soulful … the band delivers a rollicking collection.”
Tickets are $18 advance, $20 at the door. Otto’s can be reached at (815) 758-2715 or visit www.ottosdekalb.com.
