And the Heisman goes to...


Ladies and Beardedmen. It probably comes as no shock that this week's Beard of the Ball award goes to the most ass kickin, beer drinkin, heart breakin, earth quakin, Jameson rapin, rock n roll bearded band around, Lucero.

We proudly salute and thank the boys of Lucero for giving us the greatest 2 + hours of awesomeness, happiness and drunkeness that we have ever experienced at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, last saturday night.

Good times, great friends, sweet beards, & one of the best goddamn bands on earth...and it really don't get any better than this.

Check out this touching video of Lucero frontbeard, Ben Nichols, graciously accepting our award. (Apologies for not having any footage of Johnny C Stubblebeard's acceptance speech - we think it was lost somewhere in his beard around 5 am, along with roughly 32 - 35 PBR shotguns and a bag of Chili Lime Tostitos.)

and also check out this clip of Lucero performing a beautiful new whiskey-drenched tear jerker off their forthcoming album, Chariots of Jameson.

  1. Hey! That's my "Jameson rapin" photo! Amazing amazing show. Glad my pic got more use than just flickr!

  2. Thanks Teresa, I will add a photo cred for you since i stole it! Also, you should come to the Lucero Family Picnic in Little Rock this summer - the Jameson will be flowing like wine

  3. Even though the lure of Lucero and Jameson is almost impossible to resist, Arkansas is a bit of a trek from Brooklyn... :(

  4. Girl, give me your email address! write me at I have fun pics from Saturday. xoxoxo
