Lucero frontman Ben Nichols to give free acoustic lunchtime concert at the Copper Rocket Friday


If you slept on getting tickets to see Lucero at the Social Friday night, or if you just want to start your night off really, really, really early, you may want to plan on hitting up the Copper Rocket for lunch tomorrow. Lucero lead singer and songwriter Ben Nichols will be on the tiny stage from noon-2 p.m. to give a free, intimate acoustic show while you make it a half-day and start drinking early. Check out our interview with Nichols here, and see him play with a full band at the Social later Friday night.
