Lucero Family Picnic

Lucero Announces 2nd Annual Family Picnic
Takes Place September 13 in Batesville, Arkansas at Riverside Park
Lucero, Jason Isbell, Justin Townes Earle, Cory Branan, The Good Fear, Dan Montgomery Confirmed

Memphis indie/punk rockers Lucero announce their 2nd Annual Lucero Family Picnic. Taking place Saturday, September 13 in Batesville, Arkansas at Riverside Park, this year's event looks to be bigger than the inaugural one last year in which thousands descended on this small Arkansas town of 10,000.

Lucero has hand-chosen the bands who will play the Family Picnic – gritty and soulful tunesmith (and ex-Drive By Trucker) Jason Isbell, the acoustic blues and prewar folk of Nashville-based Justin Townes Earle, Memphis based singer/songwriter Cory Branan, Fayetteville, Arkansas' The Good Fear (featuring one-time Lucero guitarist Todd Gill), and the intimate songs of Memphis musician Dan Montgomery.

Said Lucero guitarist Brian Venable, "We've got some old friends like Cory Branan and The Good Fear and some new friends like Justin Townes Earle and Jason Isbell and more, it looks like it will be one hell of a day!"

Picturesque Riverside Park is on the banks of the beautiful White River. The festival is presented by Steve Thomas and Batesville Promotions.

Tickets are on-sale now and available via the band's website:

Sometimes I log in just to thumb-down bluntsnbisco's comment. Other than that, looks like a good afternoon. Lucero rocks, and Isbell is great as well.

hmmm... coming from bisco i take it that irrelevant is simply another word for ignorance on the matter. that's alright though because that festival will definitely rock on without ya. lucero will rip it up for sure.

Bands have had family picnics for ever. Ever notice some of the kick ass shirts some of the roadies wear? Or I guess some of you are above that so anyway... I wish I could attend. Might be a good thing its in a dry county cause Lucero can write a damn good sad drinking song. Dont wanna see too many tears streaming down the faces of tough old men when they break out in Nights Like These or I'll Just Fall. Damn I need a beer now

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response was there anything that could even be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this comment board is now dumber for having listened to it.
