Indie rock's Nick Luca promotes 'Fractions'

The Tucson-based band Luca, featuring frontman Nick Luca — best known as John Doe’s guitarist and producer for Neko Case, Calexico and Devotchka — has got two SanFrancisco dates in support of the new CD “Fractions.”

The album is a slight change of pace for the band; it includes covers of Lou Reed and Jonathan Richman as well as lush pop sounds, the odd somber ballad and plenty of hooks.

Luca plays Saturday at the Rite Spot Cafe, 2099 Folsom St. (at 17th Street).

Call (415) 552-6066 or visit www.ritespotcafe.net.

The band also appears Sunday at the Hemlock Tavern, 1131 Polk St. (at Post Street). Call (415) 923-0923 or visit www.hemlocktavern.com.
