Lucero frontman Ben Nichols eyes the South in the same way that Warren Zevon eyed Southern California (not surprisingly, Lucero has a song in its back catalog that pays tribute to Zevon). On the band’s latest album, Among The Ghosts, Nichols continues his haunting observations backed by a leaner sound than on previous releases. On Wednesday, September 26, Lucero will perform at Saturn. Brent Cowles will open the 8 p.m. show. Advance tickets to the 18+ show are $22 and can be purchased at www.saturnbirmingham.com.
