Lucy Dacus is coming to New Orleans to perform at Civic Theatre on October 12. Grab your tickets here.
Lucy Dacus has been credited as one of the best songwriters of her generation. The 27-year-old indie singer released her third successful album, Home Video, last year and is currently on an extended leg of fall tour dates. She will perform along with Crooks & Nannies at Civic Theatre in New Orleans on October 12.
Many know Dacus for her honest, biographical songwriting. On Home Video, she showcases her ability to use the personal as a gateway to the universal. Her guitar-centered indie rock sound, grounded by her wistful yet down-to-earth vocals, sparkles with slow-burning wit.
Success happened quickly for Dacus, who moved from debut single to debut album seemingly in minutes. The songstress from Richmond, Virginia had such an influx of popularity surrounding her first Bandcamp song, “I Don’t Want to Be Funny Anymore,” that it quickly spurred into her debut album No Burden as well as some serious attention from the music industry. Pitchfork reports that at one point, she fielded 20 offers from competing labels.
Not only has she released three successful albums under her own name. She’s also a member of the indie supergroup boygenius along with Phoebe Bridgers and Julien Baker. Their 2018 self-titled EP features hits like “Souvenir” and “Me & My Dog.”
While boygenius has received national praise, Lucy Dacus has racked up quite a bit of acclaim herself. Home Video was named a top 10 album of 2021 by NPR Music, SPIN, USA Today, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and many more.

For her fall 2022 tour stop in New Orleans, Dacus is joined by Crooks & Nannies. A collaboration between multi-instrumentalists Sam Huntington and Madel Rafter, the duo’s signature blend of brash, confessional indie rock alternates between painfully tender and jarringly odd.
