Last night I went with Maya to see Jeffery Lewis and man, it was lovely. Lewis’ clever and heart felt lyrics were enhanced by the straight forward rock the band played. A straight faced young man, Lewis’ played the crowed well, treating us to some of his large from comics about Barack Obama, a comic noir, and an unfinished piece on Korea.
Lewis played some of his covers from the band Crass, much, much slower versions. The band also played a couple songs by Jack, the bands bassist. I thought Lewis had a Kimya Dawson sound to him, kind of that anti-folk thing.
The whole show was really enjoyable one the drunk fat guy left us alone. Blue Moons and moody musicians. How do you spend your Friday night?
