Lucero is at their very best in tiny clubs and small bars.
This show was excellent.
If you get a chance to see one of your favorite bands at Armando's in downtown Martinez, CA, do it! It's a fantastic little club.
It reminds me of what Ark-a'ik almost was or could have been.
Thanks to Ben for closing the show with "Drink 'Till We're Gone."
Come back soon, fellas.

Indie-folk group Sea Wolf - the brainchild of Los Angeles native Alex Brown Church - just kicked off a nationwide tour last week in support of their new album Old World Romance.
After two successful releases (2007's Leaves In The River & 2009's White Water, White Bloom), Sea Wolf landed a track on the soundtrack to the 2009 mega-hit film The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Since then, Alex and his band have been working away at crafting what would become Old World Romance. After completing tracking last year, a complete hard drive failure forced them to start over and re-record the entire album from square one.
Months later, they emerged with the ten tracks that make up Old World Romance - arguably the band's best material to date. A release that Performer Magazine calls "a beautiful album, dark and thoughtful but with bright moments of hope and acceptance," and LA Times praises for its "lushly languid folk-pop arrangements."
Listen to the album below, or find it on your favorite streaming music service.
