Scott Lucas & the Married Men will be playing at Wire in Berwyn Friday, Nov. 22. The Chicago Tribune listed their album “Blood Half Moon” in the top 10 indie releases of 2012, according to Mango Media Manager Jill Mango.
Lucas describes the group’s evolving sound as “country-ish, alt-rock for people who like metal.” The band also incorporates violin, organ and accordion into their music.
Scott Lucas & the Married Men toured with Deer Tick last summer and played shows with James Iha, Kelly Hogan, Tristen, the Airborne Toxic Event and others in the past year.
Lucas, originally from Zion, Ill., is best known as the singer and guitarist for a two-man, Chicago rock band called Local H. For his solo records, he plays with the Married Men. Reviewers have compared this band to American Music Club, Wilco, the Waterboys and Nick Cave.
Wire is located at 6815 W. Roosevelt Rd. in Berwyn.
