To “get” the Flask, you’ll have to see ’em live. The CD just can’t do them justice.
Each night, Lucero played a slightly different show, changing up both songs and order on the set list. Friday’s was more precise, but Saturday’s the band played tighter and seemed to be having more fun.
Lucero played the hell out of Colorado: Ft. Collins Thursday, Denver Friday and Saturday, Colorado Springs Sunday (I wasn’t there, but you can listen to Sunday’s show here). In addition, Ben and various members of the band put in appearances and played a few songs at Twist & Shout and Illegal Pete’s.
I went to two shows plus Pete’s and already can’t wait for them to come back again.
