Native sons of Memphis Lucero are making their way out west as part of their lengthy Spring Tour 2013, including a stop at San Francisco’s legendary Fillmore on April 12th. After a handful of warmup shows in and around Texas, the 31-date tour kicks off in March at Charlottesville, Virginia’s Jefferson Theater (which celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2012) and winds through the States and southern Canada before wrapping up with two May shows in Kentucky. The Fillmore gig marks the country-punk outfit’s return to the famed venue a mere 13 months after they last played there, when guitarist Brian Venable’s father Guy joined the band onstage for a tremendous cover of The Band’s iconic track “The Weight”.

Lucero’s Spring Tour 2013 continues the band’s efforts in support of their ninth studio album, 2012′s magnificent Women & Work, which you can listen to in its entirety below. Standout cuts include the title track, “It May Be Too Late”, “I Can’t Stand To Leave You”, and “When I Was Young”. Tickets for Lucero’s April 12th show at The Fillmore go on sale December 23rd at 10am – get full details on that show and the band’s entire tour at the bottom of the post.
