Music: Lucero with Langhorne Slim and The Law

Lucero frontman Ben Nichols seems destined to be a Rock & Roll lifer, a guy who revels in playing 200 shows a year for a relatively small but passionate fan base. The Memphis-bred band Nichols leads has dropped eight albums since forming in 1998, moving from Punk-inflected Roots rave-ups (think The Replacements playing Uncle Tupelo covers or vice versa) to a versatile mix of Soul, Country and straight-up Rock (think all of Steve Earle or Being There-era Wilco) with uncommon ease. 

Lucero’s latest, Women & Work, is driven by the music Nichols heard as a kid growing up in rural Arkansas.

(Curious side note: Nichols’ brother, Jeff, is the filmmaker behind Take Shelter and the just-released Mud, which features Lucero songs.)

9 p.m. at the Southgate House Revival. $22. southgatehouse.com.
