AUDIO: Lucero at Mercury Lounge in NYC 7.23.11

The show was originally billed as a gig by "Nobody's Darlings." It fell on the same day Lucero played The Warped Tour on Long Island. Things got started late and the band were on stage by the time everyone was let in. I was near the end of the line so I missed the first half of the first song. Shit happens. Overall, it's a great recording. Lucero fans will be more than happy. They played three new songs, including one that apparently had never been played live before. It's more than obvious the band was itching to play more than 30 minutes, which is the usual set length at Warped. Drinks were had, fans got rowdy. Good time had by all. Glad I get to share it with you.

VIDEO: Riot On The Dance Floor Trailer

This is where I attempt to give back... City Gardens was a club in Trenton, NJ I went to when I was younger. I saw The Ramones, Rollins Band, All, Quicksand and some others play there during my punk rock formative years. It was a dirty, dangerous place in a part of town that wasn't safe after dark. Of course, that was part of the fun.

City Gardens closed in 1994, the year after I graduated high school. Much to my delight, there's now a full length documentary about the club in the works. But the film makers need your help. Watch the trailer. Maybe it'll inspire you to drop a few bucks and help with production costs.

I'm not making any money off this blog, nor do I plan to. All the music I post here is free for anyone who wants it. I just wanted to put up this trailer in the hopes that maybe one person might feel inspired. For more info, visit either the Riot On The Dance Floor Kickstarter page or
