I think back on the first time we laid eyes on Uncle Lucius. Music Fog was in the back room at Threadgill’s in 2009 in March during SXSW. It was our first outing there, and we had been working hard all day with a full dance card. The connection was made because we were part of the Threadgill’s family, and so was the band. We wound up doing a set with them in the evening. We were so jazzed by what they were doing that we sent them the entire set. I know they were able to use it to get gigs and to plant the seeds that would grow into what they are today.
Uncle Lucius is a testament to using the finest ingredients to bake the cake. They have worked hard these last four years, and I have to say that they are even better with every turn of the season. The new Uncle Lucius album, And You Are Me, comes out today. They kicked off a new tour in support of it at home in Austin this past Saturday at Antone’s Night Club. Here is where they are gonna be. It makes me really happy to see Uncle Lucius knocking on the door of success. They are great guys, besides the talent, and it is especially satisfying when good guys win. Today we bring you back to the Threadgill’s stage a year ago in March of 2011. "Got Over Myself/Fire on the Rooftop" cannot be found on the new album, though “Fire” is from the 2009 release Pick Your Head Up. We offer this up for those of you who have not seen this amazing band in action. Remember, your Uncle loves you!
