Acclaimed indie up-and-comer Lucy Dacus brings big sound to the Social

Heavy is the head upon which rests the crown of buzz, but Richmond singer-songwriter Lucy Dacus is clearly in this for the long haul, not for the clicks or likes. Dacus has a big voice, guitar chops for days, and a seemingly endless supply of elegant hooks and equally elegant lyrical turns of phrase, all evident from the moment she broke big in 2015 with the sardonic “I Don’t Wanna Be Funny Anymore.” From there, the momentum has been ever-increasing. Her second album, 2018’s Historian, on indie stalwart Matador, raked in critical plaudits across the pop-scribe spectrum. But Dacus isn’t resting on that hype; the prolific songwriter just launched a 2019 holiday song series, where she will release new songs and performances throughout the year to commemorate special days both large and small. (Valentine’s Day saw a cover of Edith Piaf’s “La Vie En Rose.”) We’re enthralled. And, as an added bonus, Mothers – who knocked out a packed house at Will’s last year – is the opener!
