Fall Tour Dates Announced for Lucero's 'Ramblin' Roadshow and Memphis Revue'

As we reported recently Lucero's sixth release, 1372 Overton Park comes out October 6 (presale info and a cool 6-song sampler with your order can be found here). The good news is that the new tracks are white hot, with horns and female backup singers; frankly, it’s like they decided to couple some of the best aspects of Memphis and its music with their own fab style of sodden and whiskey-soaked cowpunk.

We also mentioned fall tour dates were about to be released. What makes it even cooler is that this tour, coined the “Ramblin' Roadshow and Memphis Revue,” will have Amy Lavere and Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcom along for the ride through many of the October dates. LaVere, who was in $5 Cover with Ben Nichols, plays stand-up bass with a lilting voice, one that makes her songs of crimes of passion surreal but captivating. If their Myspace URL of “JukeJointDuo" is any indication, Cedric Burnside and Lightnin’ Malcom will bring quite the rhythm and blues tie-in. Burnside is the grandson country blues singer R.L. Burnside and Malcom is a skilled blues multi-instrumentalist in his own right. All in all, should make for a right proper way to remotely introduce anyone unfamiliar to the “birthplace of the blues.” Now if they could only hold a pig picking in every club’s parking lot too…
