It’s been a pretty solid year for Lucy Dacus, who has just wrapped her latest tour. Her new EP 2019 is a reminder that the music industry is changing and artists like Dacus are signalling that change. Now after a successful year, it’s been announced that she’ll be on the longstanding PBS music show Austin City Limits at the beginning of the year.
The episode that also features Sharon Van Etten was taped in July, and will feature some favorites of fans as part of her performance. The long running show has featured everyone from Willie Nelson to Radiohead, R.E.M. to Cat Power. It’s a PBS institution and a testament to the city of Austin’s long running support of the music community.
The episode airs online and on television screens on January 04. More information can be obtained here. 2019 is available for purchase directly from Matador Records. It is also available digitally or to be streamed on all streaming sites. Lucy Dacus is back on the road beginning December 29 at Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia, PA until April 01 through 04 in Iowa City, IA at Mission Creek Festival. Her complete tour dates can be accessed here.
