Lucero at Minglewood Hall 

The Lucero Family Picnic comes to Memphis for the first time ever this Saturday at Minglewood Hall. The venue will host the event outside, and Willet will be blocked off as well as the entire Minglewood Hall parking lot. Lucero has been throwing a picnic for more than five years now, but the event has frequently taken place at Riverside Park in Batesville, Arkansas. Central BBQ and Pabst Blue Ribbon are sponsoring the picnic, but there will also be food trucks, beer vendors, and local merchandise retailers on site. The FBM BMX crew will also be doing a routine on skate ramps an hour before the music starts.

BMX Stunts and beer and barbecue are all pretty cool, but the main attraction at the picnic is obviously the music. While the past Lucero Family Picnics have featured groups that fit within the alt-country genre, this Saturday's lineup features a diverse group of local talent. The North Mississippi Allstars join Lucero as the special guests, and locals Marcella & Her Lovers, Clay Otis, and Robby Grant are all joining in to rock the Minglewood Hall parking lot. While the set times for the Lucero Family Picnic haven't been announced yet, each act at Saturday's show deserves to be checked out.

Grant recently released Let The Little Things Go, his last album under the Vending Machine moniker, and there's really no telling what evil genius Otis has planned for his performance. Marcella & Her Lovers have a whole slew of April shows planned, and the Dickinson brothers are also staying busy with a Sons of Mudboy appearance on Sunday, April 19th, at Shangri-La Records. One can only hope the Lucero Family Picnic leads to more outdoor shows at Minglewood Hall during the spring and summer.
